My eldest son challenged me to write a poem about a thing and not about fantasy. I chose a box and, me being me, I wanted to make it mysterious.

An extract from a poem from my book, The Perfect Prompt.
I have a new book coming out. It will be released as an ebook on Amazon on 24th May and is available to preorder.
It is based around a short story I shared a while ago. It explores the story from multiple viewpoints, each time offering a fresh perspective and new information until the story reaches a new conclusion. But will it be a happy ending?
Only one way to find out!
disclaimer This is paranormal fiction and it is different from the poetry I write. It’s not one for younger kids.

The Storm. I love a storm. I don’t like any damage a storm causes. I just like the sounds and the sights. The angry skies and the loud wind or thunder.
Last year I wrote this poem, envious of my favourite fiction writers who could create wonderful stories. I just didn’t think I had the attention span!
One year on…..
I have published one narrative poem as an ebook
I have published a poetry collection with a difference
And now I write short fiction and I have a longer project coming up based on one of my short stories….
I am definitely an author. I may not sell millions but I love creating stories.
This is the new cover for the Perfect Prompt. (paperback) The last cover didn’t show the gap in the trees, because of the layout , and this is important in the cover design as it symbolises ideas and where you can take them.
One year ago today I took this photo and wrote this poem. I hadn’t long recovered from COVID and I was on furlough from work. I went for a run/walk and I stopped to have a quiet time with nature and the outdoors and the poem came to me. I don’t think we can underestimate the positive effects on mental health and wellbeing that the outdoors can bring.
