For the past eighteen years, I’ve enjoyed the most stimulating hobby of Creative Writing; from achieving my ‘A’ Level in English Literature in 2002, I proceeded to embark on several creative writing courses, compiling short stories and poetry; these classes were held at Runshaw College.
I continued with my literary career, achieving a 2:1 degree in Creative Writing and English Literature at Uclan (University of Central Lancashire), Preston, in 2015.
During this period, I have become a member of various c/w groups at Euxton, Leyland, Wigan and currently, the Writers’ Cauldron, Horwich; these activities have considerably enriched my literacy ideas, creative flair and imagination.
Many areas of my life have furnished me with inspiration for my poetry; from social issues in society, my identity, and childhood memories to my hobbies of countryside walking and gardening. These emotions I’ve endeavoured to convey through my collection, Poetic Desire.
