About Me

I’ve had Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for over 30 years. I used to be a successful teacher and athlete. Nowadays, my MS has progressed so much, I use a rollator, sticks, wheelchair or mobility scooter to move around. I love writing poetry and cover many themes, but often engage with the problems of disability. I write for both adults and children. I am thrilled they can relate to my poems and are finding them inspiring. I have had three pamphlets published by The Hedgehog Poetry Press: Journey Through the Fire (2024), Step into the Dark (2023) and my winning Stickleback micro pamphlet Balancing Act (2021). My debut chapbook Quicksand was published by Dreich (2020). I donate all proceeds to the MS Trust charity. Being disabled hasn’t stopped me from having fun. It just means I have to shine my light in a different way.
