Birmingham-born Bob moved to Southport in 2014 aged seventy. There, he rediscovered a love of poetry which had lain dormant for ten years. This was largely due to the flourishing literary and open mic scene in Merseyside. He now regards himself as a Mersey Brummie.
He particularly wishes to acknowledge and thank the members of the Southport Writers' Group and the Fringe Writers and Poets for the assistance and encouragement given over the past five years.
