Poet and author from Wales. Poetry of all kinds and children's stories. Even her dog writes.

Background Information

Daffni Percival  moved to North Wales in 1985 after a varied career including nursing, childcare,  a university degree in Russian and French, and fifteen years of running an International Centre in Exeter and simultaneously teaching English as a foreign language.

In Wales she earns a precarious living teaching intensive residential crash courses in Russian, French, Welsh and German and writes and publishes stories and poetry. She writes both serious and funny poetry, stories for children, mostly featuring animals, especially sheepdogs.

Publishing and writing
Finding time to be both a writer and a publisher is proving a more than 24/7 job. Recently on hold is the formatting of Heff Wyn, Ei Barddoniaeth, a full collection of hedd Wyn's poetry including some not previously published. The book block is now done and I am struggling with formatting a cover in Serif Photoplus.
