As well as the day job, I am also a published poet, short story and flash fiction writer.
In 2011 I instigated/co-edited a best selling poetry anthology to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. The book titled ‘Soul Feathers’ (after the Emily Dickinson poem ‘Hope is the thing with feathers/That perches in the soul’) was a number 2 best seller at Waterstones (blush!).
With contributions from well known poets including Benjamin Zephaniah, Bob Dylan, Maya Angelou, Seamus Heaney, Carol Ann Duffy plus classical poets from the past and other published/previously unpublished poets, the book was a huge success.
If you would like to purchase a copy, you can buy it from most leading bookshops including Waterstone’s, WH Smith or direct from Indigo Dreams, the publisher.
