In 2007-08, I was delighted to be Warwick Poet Laureate. This blog followed my Laureateship from start to finish (October 2008). My latest poetry collection is 'Camper Van Blues' from Salt Publishing. I am married with five children, and my interests include local and English history, folklore and heritage. During my Laureateship I wrote a series of commissioned poems set in Warwickshire and the towns of Warwick and Leamington Spa in particular, and a long poem called "On Warwick Castle". All these are published in pamphlet form by Nine Arches Press. Please click below on 'View my complete profile' for my email address and other associated blogs.
