Delighted to feature in Stepawaymagazine this month with a poem about urban perambulation-something very dear to my heart. My first instinct on visiting a new city is to grid -walk the main streets, the only way, in my opinion, to get a real feel for the momentum and zeitgeist of the urban landscape. Even in the larger cities, London, New York, Berlin, Paris I have chosen to develop my relationship on foot and feel that I have a more intimate understanding of the key quarters as a result of my persistent footfalls.
Here is the latest issue of Bewildering Stories magazine. As a member of the Review Panel and Poetry Editor I am proud of the service it provides for new and emerging writers. Check out an eclectic mix of prose and poetry from around the world in the Quarterly Review of a magazine that has provided a non stop relay of speculative prose and poetry for over ten years, in the great tradition of American pulp fiction!

It’s been a very busy couple of months. Like most poets I am forced to earn a crust, and in my case, I currently do so by surfing the outer fringes of the educational vortex-having resigned last October from a financially lucrative, Head of Media post, in order to give more time to my core poetic purpose, and, of course, smell the odd flower or two.
I very pleased with, and have high expectations of my most recent crop of poetry, and I have received, during this relatively fallow period, a number of attractive contributor’s copies of magazines-most notably,’For Rhino in a Shrinking World’-a fine and passionate publication containing my poem, ‘Midsummer Night’s Eve’, and ‘Dove Tales’ a world peace anthology. I have also been engaged with poetry editorial work for, ‘Bewildering Stories’ magazine and finishing a collaborative first novel, ‘Beer Balls and the Belgian Mafia’
