The poetry now has its own page under 'blog', and I've also added direct links to my facebook and twitter pages. On t…

Coloured music of laughter and mirth;
But now pale is the memory that covers the shrine
Where a union…

With regards to my fiance, there'll probably b…

The only change you'll find is that when posting comments, you'll have to verify tha…

Literature as we know it is changing. It is moving from Penguin Classics Paperback Novels, to Amazon Kindles and iPads. Our children may never know who William Blake or John Keats are; however they may learn of Salman Rushdie or J.R.R. Tolkien, the writers that are shaping our Literature today.
