"What if you don't have a mythology, not many memories. Can you reconstruct yourself from grains of sand, from broken stones?" (from The Seeker)
I'm an indie poet and occasional flash fiction writer.
My first zine The Seeker is now available on Etsy.
Just a bit of news. I have just finished a poetry course with Manchester Metropolitan University, and during the course I wrote a poem which I have called ‘Sitting Room with Circus Lion’. I got a good review for it from another student (thank you Igor), and I’m reasonably happy with it as it stands, but to be sure I’ll leave it for a few weeks and then have another look.
Later this week, I’ll be posting my new microfiction ‘Theseus’s Ship’. So check back if you would like to read it!
And finally, I recently had a haibun accepted by haibun and tanka prose journal Haibun Today. The new issue is out now, so head over there if you would like to read the piece:

This month’s Haiku Pea podcast is a special on the theme of childhood. I had sent in a few haiku, and two were chosen to be read during the episode.
You can listen to the podcast or read the transcript here.
A few days ago I received a message from the editors of Reflex Flash Fiction. My flash, entitled The Time I Lost My Appetite, just lost out on making the long-list, but they liked it so much, they still wanted to publish it on their website.
You can read it here: The Time I Lost My Appetite.
You are looking at a very happy writer!
