I am from Southend-on-Sea, Essex; however I have travelled extensively and lived a very diverse and prolific life. I have lived in Africa with a Maasai Warrior, London, Berkshire and North Wales. Most of my work is confessional/revolutionary. I have never received a bad review, which surprises me, as I do not conform to the lyrical dictatorship that is rife in critical literary circles. I have written and published 2 silm volumes, 2 major poetry collections and a 300-page memoir that is now in progress as a book-to-film adpatation and my poetry will be in the film! One slim voume was nominated for an award; the other slim volume - THE PANJANDRUMOF QUONDAM - was awarded a high accolade and translated for publication in Russian. I have recently recorded The P of Q for CD and I am working with a Russian Composer on this major epic. TLAZOLTEOTL POEMS & ILLUSTRATIONS and HELKAPPE POEMS are my 2 major collections. I have been published in most of the major poetry magazines and in one magazine I was published on the same page as Pete Doherty. I have also recorded a Selected Poems CD and you can listen to a selection of my work on my various spaces.
