Hello, welcome to my own site where I hope to continue posting blogs on all things literary, poetic and bibliophilic as well as shamelessly plugging my own wares at the same time. I am a poet, literary critic and a little bit of a freelance academic, originally from Warkworth, Northumberland. Until recently I was living in Ghent, Belgium but my partner and I have decided it is time for a change.
I’ll be transferring over my old blogs from my Copy Cats ‘Cat Flap’ blog so that these can be preserved for posterity when the site is shut down for good. I’ll also be posting a very long new blog which talks about my short life in Belgium and my new poetry collection Passport which is due out from Nine Arches Press in July, 2018.
