I'm a published poet who writes for both children and adults also, but I especially enjoy writing for children. I write many poems with rhyme, rhythm/metre, which I enjoy. I was encouraged to write by the children in my local school.

Background Information

 I write poetry for all age groups, but particularly for children.

I especially like to write my poems with rhyme and rhythm for three important reasons:

1    Children said that they liked poems written in this way and I wrote my work for their enjoyment first and foremost.

2    Rhythm and rhyme in poetry helps younger children develop phonemic awareness, a key literacy skill.

3     Rhythm and rhyme enhances poetry and makes it sparkle as a performance art.

I started writing about five years ago and have written 850 poems, 344 of which were published last year in five books, and another eight books have been published this year and are on my website.

Birth Place
Ilkley,  UK

My poems were market researched with teachers and their children and, as a new writer, 344 were chosen for publication.

I was chosen as Inspirational Online Children's Poet for 2007. You can see this if you Google these words.

Additional Information

I am working with a group of four qualified and experienced children's artists and we are hoping that my website will be the best internet poetry website with original poetry and fantastic artwork. We hope to link poetry to many of the other performing arts, ie animation, film, photography, music, singing, puppetry. If you are interested in joining me, let me know.

Favorite Links

This is a very popular poetry website containing hundreds of my own poems for children of all age groups and adults. Please do come and say hello in my guestbook.
