My creative writing career started with poetry.

From starting back in December 2007, I wrote in excess of 700 poems in less than five years.

My verse consists of individual pieces and many series. On websites, I write poetry under the pen-name Tomfoollery but my eBooks are published under my own name.

In an effort to prove that poetry is not simply about flowers, butterflies and bunny rabbits my work in verse covers such topics as Humour, Natural History, Romance, Crime, Thriller, Adventure, Military (true and imagined), and the Supernatural.                                                                                                                                  

I wrote the original drafts of many of my poems on train journeys as a commuter, and occasionally I’d pen verse when on a lunch break.

In 2010 I gradually moved on from poetry to short stories and adapted some poems to my next choice of writing discipline. Logically I then moved on to novels, but I continued with my poetry and it provided inspiration.

I have moved my novel and poetry volumes to Amazon / Kindle.

If you at home using Amazon – feel free to go along and browse my ebooks. The poetry series is now titled, ‘An Anthology of Poetry’ and is easily checked out by going to my author’s page.
