which arrives at the intellect
by way of the heart.’
R S Thomas
I live in North Wales, near the Snowdonia National Park, in the UK. If I like a poem, I will publish it, irrespective of background or publishing history of the author.
A lover of literature since childhood, my first poem to be published, written in Welsh, appeared in a local magazine when I was a teenager, one of only two chosen from my school.
Then, I took a degree in English & Italian at the University of Lancaster, spending the third year studying and working in the beautiful Italian city of Florence.
After that, although I continued to write sporadically, there followed a period when life intervened. I began to submit my work seriously in 2012. Since then, my writing has been published in literary journals and anthologies, both online and in print.
This year I was included in this free-to-download e-book anthology The Way It Is.
