Poet & lyricist. I was born and bred in glasgow...a place of pure inspiration. I write about life, about the years gone by and the present, and also the things I see around me, the everyday things that might affect us all. I also love to write about Scotland and the beauty it possesses, and my hometown of Glasgow and its a great source of inspiration for me.


Background Information

I have been writing poetry most of my life and a book of my work over the last 20 years was published recently,  its titled 'A Life of Rhyme' and published by Athena Press (Book Publishers).  Its a book filled with life through my experiences growing up in a family of 10 in a deprived area of glasgow.  There are poems that have been influenced by this great city of glasgow and also Scotland and its history.  Its easy to find inspiration from such a beautiful country, its past and its present.  As well as A Life of Rhyme, I am a featured poet in 'Poets Centre Stage' published by Cauliay Publishing & Distribution UK.

I also like to write song lyrics and have had a few of my songs recorded by a local band here in glasgow.  I would be keen to collaborate with musicians looking for songwriters as i'm sure it will enhance my skills as a writer of lyrics as i'm no good with instruments at all.

I'm also working on my second book of poetry and hope this to be completed this year.

Birth Place
Glasgow,  
Accomplishments

Still waiting for the Booker Prize (hee hee) The only prize I will ever need will be from the folk who say they really enjoyed my book, or certain poems really touched them...thats the best prize and feeling in the world.

Additional Information

I'm a member of the Aberdeenshire poetry group who meet at Better Read Books in Ellon (Aberdeenshire) every few months, organised by publisher Michael William Molden & Bill Kelly from Better Read Books. Participated in Wordfringe Festival several months ago and looking forward to this event again soon.
