I'm a retired schoolteacher with an unbalanced mind. I'm 52 and from God's own country of Wales
I am a child of the 60s and I'm greatly influenced by great poets like Bob Dylan and John Lennon. I think Marshall Mathers (Eminem)is a very fine poet.
I tend to write several poems on a theme then move on because I'm easily distracted
Had short stories read on BBC Radio 4 and an article in the parish magazine. One poem has been used in an anthology, just to fill up the space I think
I have recently been working with young people aged 14-15 and wish I hadn't because their poetry is far superior to mine
