Biography

To date I have mainly focused on developing a feel for exploring emotions as they link in with the broader themes of daily existence. At school and university I felt that for my integrity as a sensate human being it is necessary to rip off the shallow veneer of cultural conditioning to get to the real you underneath. I feel we are all composed of multiple layers of selves, which due to the pressures of our conventional lives are split off and hidden from view. That is until a severe life challenging event hits and we are faced with a choice.
This intense personal journey of self discovery is a form of cleansing which my main voice in the narrative feels that he must find again. In order to do that he must leave his safe familiar world and trade it for a life saturated with chaos and creative sensuality. Exploring through his senses how far he can take that reality to its ultimate level so that he can live his life with meaning enraptured by the intensity of his new reborn self.
A sequel exploring the theme of redemption and renewal will in the same format of my current offering to feast your senses is now in the process of being crafted.
By the way if you like this book and are in tune with its message wrapped up in each verse, then $2.99 is a small price to pay to appreciate my work of social conscience. However as a matter of goodwill my poetry e-book Soul on Fire currently is free. I have made it free for a limited period so that you the reader can become familiarised with my style of verse. I have a third poetry e-book Shared Experiences out as well, for you to check out. All of them cover shared in common social issues which are a feature of all our lives, which are the signature tune of all my work.
The last book Secret Journal of Psychotic of which a sequel is in the making focusses on an intense study of severe psychosis in the format of a journal set in the future in a different darker England. Dip into that and discover its hypnotic power as it is a journey into the dark recesses of the mind, both comical and tragic in its effect on the you the reader. Finally I hope my books give you something beneficial which you can draw strength from when you need it most.
