Welcome to my website.
Here you can find out about me, my books, my poems... and what Ferdie/Fletcher has been up to since his last book in some pages from his diary. I hope you enjoy the site!
The first six mini e-books in the One Week of Poems series are now available on Amazon Kindle - perfect for a quick poetry fix. They are also gathered together in the One Week of Poems Box Set (Amazon UK / Amazon US). I am currently planning book seven, One Week of Seaside Poems, which will hopefully be ready for the summer holidays.
The first six books in the series are:
One Week of Christmas Poems (Amazon UK / Amazon US)
One Week of Dinosaur Poems (Amazon UK / Amazon US)
One Week of Garden Poems (Amazon UK / Amazon US)
One Week of Space Poems (Amazon UK / Amazon US)
One Week of Football Poems (Amazon UK / Amazon US)
One Week of Spooky Poems (Amazon UK / Amazon US)

The final of the Dino-Cup,
The stadium is packed tonight.
Below, the court marked in the dust,
Above, the moon is shining bright.
The teams are out. The whistle blows.
Gigantosaurus has the ball!
He thunders over oviraptor
(Who is really much to small)...
As a caterpillar crunches
All those lovely leafy lunches,
Does it raise its little eyes
To the butterfly-filled skies?
Does it watch them as they dance?
Does it long for just one chance
To escape its leafy place,
And fly free in light and space...
