My first poetry collection, Words to Say, was published in 2002 and my second, Talking to Lord Newborough, in 2004.

My third collection, Passing through the Woods, was published in June 2012 by Troubador Publishing Ltd.  It is available from UK bookshops and also, including a downloadable Kindle version, from Amazon UK, Amazon.com and all other Amazon sites.
