My new poem A Glamour of Bones is up on Honeysuckle Magazine!
Trigger Warning – eating disorders
Big thank you to Tracy S Sydor for allowing me to use one of her photographs for this piece.
It’s been a white since I’ve blogged here. Life has gotten in the way of my photography recently.
Due to a back and neck injury I am struggling to get out as much as I used to. Over the last few years my ability to go out for walks has slowly diminished.
However, instead of getting down about my health, although don’t get me wrong, my injuries have caused me to go down some dark roads. I have decided to be brave and start sharing some of my poetry.
I’ve been writing for years but it’s only been over the past couple of years that I’ve started sharing it with people and now I’m lucky enough to write for a living.
Poetry is different though. It’s personal, far more so than any opinion piece I’ve written. Poetry is bearing your soul and as usual the fraud police are at the back of my mind screaming ‘for the love of god don’t show anyone that rubbish!’.
To the fraud police I say…come and get me! So what if no one likes it? So what if no one reads it? My poetry is what is it and I’d rather write it down and share it with the world than hide it away and deny it breath.
So, share your art! Bring it into the world bloody and screaming. Let it breath and see what happens. Maybe nothing will come of it but remember, you are an artist, a creator. It’s your job to be true to the art in your heart and your head.
Dare to share!
The first issue of The Shadows Magazine is out and features some of my photography.
Go check it out, it’s FREE!
Really looking forward to being involved in such a cool project. The institute has some great courses lined up, so if you like horror check out their website!
Some of my photography has been used in issue #1 of Honeysuckle Magazine!
I started doing some work for HM after I found out they were looking for a Photography Editor. I’ve had some ill health recently so I haven’t been able to help as much as I would have liked but that should change.
The editor Ronit is a cool lady who seems to love the same style of art as I do. I’m looking forward to working with her more over the next few months. To view the issue just click the link above.
So, have a read of Issue #1 and let us know what you think! You can find us on Twitter:

You might have noticed an article that’s been doing the rounds concerning Fairy Doors that have been popping up in a wood in Somerset.
I have fairy door too.
So I played around in my back garden, most likely looking like a nutter, and got some shots of the door.
I love this idea but just the doors, not the notes or trinkets left behind…because litter.
I’d like to take my door and a few other props to the woods for a shoot that’s a little different. Keep your eyes peeled!
