Bewitched words play across my tongue
                 and leave my lips, to dance among
                 the shadow-shapes, untamed, unplanned....

I am a poet and short-fiction writer, currently studying for a Creative Writing MA at Royal Holloway College, University of London.  I read frequently at poetry events in and around London, and from 2013 to 2016, was co-host of Rhyme and Rhythm Jazz-Poetry Club at Enfield's Dugdale Theatre.

I am the Pre-Raphaelite Society's Poet-in-Residence.  Some of my commissioned poems written for the Society may be read at these links:   

I have been widely published in a variety of journals and anthologies, and placed in many competitions, winning the William Blake Poetry Prize and being a finalist in the Mslexia Poetry Competition in 2015; being Highly Commended in the York Literature / York Mix Poetry Prize 2016; being Commended in the inaugural Winchester Poetry Prize 2016; and being Commended in the Cafe Writers Poetry Competition in January 2017.

I am, with Allen Ashley, co-author of “Dreaming Spheres: Poems of the Solar System”, a poetry sequence inspired by the solar system, which we have performed extensively at various poetry events, including the Torbay Poetry Festival.  “Dreaming Spheres” was published by World Fantasy Award-winning PS Publishing, and can be purchased via this link:
