From Llanelli, Wales.
I am a 52 year old writer and performer living in Llanelli in West Wales. I started writing 3 years ago when dramatic changes in my personal life meant I had more time on my hands than I was used to, so needed something to fill my days and nights. I have completed 3 collections of poetry now and 4 children's books and am currently working on a somewhat surreal collection of short stories. Writing gives me peace of mind and a sense of personal achievement, moreover, I find it incredibly therapeutic and fulfilling. I also love the performance aspect of my work, however, I don't know how much longer that will last as I'm currently battling laryngeal cancer and may have to take a bit of time out as a consequence.
Life and death in general. Hostilities - personal and nationalistic. Injustices (on all levels). The lack of concern on global warming. The frailties of love. Personal experiences.
