Gopagilla (2012) Crystal Clear (Sold out)

‘These are poems that hold words to the light until they catch it and flash with sudden truth.’ Andrew McCulloch, Times Literary Supplement.

The Sun Bathers (2013) Shoestring Press

‘Filled with invention, exceptional skill and rueful humour ‘ Peter Carpenter, Under The Radar.

‘Such writing is highly imaginative and something of a high wire act…this is a vivid collection’ Warwick Review.

‘A lyricism that is quite his own.’ David Cooke, The North

The Great Animator (2017) Shoestring Press

‘A modern lyricism that’s fiercely human. Top pick for 2017’ Mark Fiddes.

‘ Every other line offers something in language we can revel in, smile at, whisper in pleasure as we read. Some lines feel like sonic ball-pools we can roll around in, emerging for air only as they resolve.’ Noel Williams,  The North 

” There’s a kind of spirituality at work in poems which reference such things as the unexpected sight of a heron on an inland housing estate and in the title poem.’ Michael Brown.
