Born in Belfast, have lived in London and moved recently to Brighton. I have enjoyed writing and literature all my life. I have written arts review articles for magazines. Enjoy memoir-writing (2 chapters written on my mother's life). Would very much like to return to poetry-writing. Main influences, or should I say, I most enjoy the NI poets - Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon, Medbh McGuckian. Visually I enjoy photography.
