How did you get started writing poetry?

My writing started as journaling. Soon it evolved into shorter stand alone pieces. Some will never be read by anyone and others I share. I find nature and the seasons of particular interest. It’s a way of recording an experience or memory.

Recently I started writing childrens’ poems and I look forward to doing more.

Who were your influences?

I have always read both poetry and literature. Lewis Grassic Gibbon is my favourite author, Meg Henderson's "The Holy City " a close second.

The poets I read are:- Robert Burns, Louis McNeice, Emily Dickinson, Anne Weems, Jackie Kay and Carol Anne Duffy.
