I was born in pontypool Wales in 1950, One of Seven Children. We were taken at early age's we were taken from my home and put into care, when my mother died suddenly, It was there that I became interested in writing, It was my favourite pastime as a teen. The poetry came later when I left school and just for something to do I began out of interest to see If I could be any good at this type of writing, The people around me were kind enough to say they enjoyed what I did. Which encouraged me. and I have been writing poems ever since, My first poem started many years ago was called WHAT IF and is among my works on this site.
