I am a writer, poet and producer. I write poetry, fiction and creative non fiction about nature, belonging and the nature of belonging.
I’ve found a poetry family near Exeter where I produce and host a podcast called Tell Me Something and in the before times hosted a friendly and inclusive poetry/spoken word open mic called Poetry in the Pub.
I created Tell Me Something during lockdown, missing a connection with poets and people, and it’s been a real hit. I wove audio files of poems and sounds together into a blissful and soothing immersive soundscape. It felt like a collaborative, albeit socially distanced, project and was a great spirit lifter. Why not get involved in the next episode?
I have had work published in national as well as local outlets and have been a contributing editor at The Blue Nib literary magazine and am a regular contributor to Crediton Radio, and Crediton In & Around. I am a regular performer at open mics and poetry events, and reached poetry nirvana when I supported Liz Berry in Exeter in 2019.
In 2019 I moved to an awkward, falling down house in a village in mid Devon called Sandford. I write a blog called Roots & Redsand about our attempts to tame both it and the garden. If you like nature, house renovations and occasional despair, you can subscribe to keep up with all the goings on or not-so-goings on.
