Author Biography

Many of my happiest years were spent in Axminster (Devon), where I was born. In my late teens we moved to Wells (Somerset). Six months later I moved to Oxford to work as a Biomedical scientist, initially at the Radcliffe Infirmary, then Littlemore Hospital and finally, the John Radcliffe hospital. After 25 years, I retrained as a chiropodist and returned to Wells, to set up my own practice. My only real regret in life is not keeping up with my musical hobby playing in a few small local orchestras. My fondest memory, though, is of my old school orchestra. The rhythm of music has been replaced by the rhythm of verse. The photo is of myself, and my dear faithful pal, Monty. He was always at my side when I was writing and listened, with his head cocked to one side, whilst I read each poem to him as they were penned. He may not have understood the words, but he certainly enjoyed the mood. I would describe myself as a chiropodist who writes poems. Not as some have said ... 'A poet who works in podiatry.'
