Ravens in the Attic

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before”

Edgar Allan Poe – The Raven

As someone with a penchant for the gothic, especially in my poetry, I’m thrilled to announce that two of my dark romance poems have been selected to appear in the rather Poe-inspired sounding Ravens in the Attic lit mag.

I am very grateful to editor Sarah Little for accepting my words & giving them a place in a dark & exciting journal. You’ll find my poem Bloodlust on the site now & Beating will be coming soon.

If you enjoy the words of me & my fellow poets, I encourage you to support the Ravens in the Attic Patreon. From as little as $1 a month, you’ll receive access to exclusive content, including poems, short stories & photographs.

Happy reading & thank you for your support!

Black Bough Issue 2: Apollo 11 Special

The Eagle has landed. The second issue of Black Bough is here, a tribute to the Apollo 11 mission, full of cosmic & space inspired poetry from around the world.

I’m thrilled that my poem Lyra was chosen for the issue, and can be found on broadside 27. Inspired by a very special person & one of the most interesting constellations in the night sky.

As part of the issue, many writers have recorded readings of their poems, myself included. You can listen to me reading Lyra here, or find us on Soundcloud using the tag Black Bough.

Thank you so much to EIC Matthew M C Smith for featuring my work, & for being a helpful, gracious & passionate editor.

Fevers of the Mind Poetry & Art Digest, Vol 1

I think every writer secretly dreams of seeing their words in print. This isn’t to take away from the value of sharing your work digitally, but there’s just something so tangible & satisfying about holding your work in your hands.

So I’m honoured to announce that my first print publication comes in the form of the Fevers of the Mind Poetry & Art Digest, Vol 1, which you can buy on Amazon now in both paperback & Kindle format.

It’s a bumper debut edition, featuring three of my romantic poems – The Colour of Love, Longing & Stormy.

Many, many thanks to David L. O’Nan for choosing my poems for this wonderful publication.
