I'm father of four (not likely to change) and granddad to two girls and one boy(hopefully will change).
I've been writing poetry for many years but only recently dared to share any of them. Never had any published (except on AD) although I was offered a chance if I was prepared to pay the publisher - I declined, as in my eyes if I have to pay them then my work isn't good enough :)
I'm a computer programmer by trade, a motorcyclist by inclination and a romantic at heart.I also write erotica, I've recently published a few here, which I'm forever being told is too romantic to be considered porn (the main reason I started writing this genre was to prove sex is better in a romantic situation).
My poetry covers a wide range of topics but mainly Love/Romance/Retationships and serious topics. It is the latter I would prefer people to read and comment on, more for their content than their poetic prowess.
My other loves are my dogs and good wine - mainly French!
