I am currently working on my next book, a collection for children called 'The Bubble Wrap' which is due for publication in 2017. It will include older poems that I've been performing in schools for many years alongside plenty of new ones which I've been writing in 2016 on subjects such as daddy long legs, everyday magic or footballs that fly over the fence. More news to follow very soon...



Over the winter I'e been working on Suffolk Artlink's Jumpstart project for adults with learning difficulties in Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich and Lowestoft. The theme was journeys and over twelve weeks we made poems and songs, aided by my long-time collaborator Maurice Horhut on the piano. These songs have been turned into 'videos' with the help of artists Caitlin Howells, Kasia Posen and Gareth Bayliss. The three films will be available for viewing shortly...



I'm also delighted to have taken part in a Poetry & Dance project with dancer Sam Moss at Grundisburgh Primary School, which resulted in a performance at the school in November.
