THE END OF AN ORDINARY LIFE
"OUTSTANDING. In The End of an Ordinary Life: A Memoir in Verse, we are presented with poems of memory and loss, poems that seek to rekindle and reclaim with delicate and precise description a window that we can all see through. "Morning Song When the Music has Faded" is a good example of what this collection does well, creating a window into the past and making us feel as well as see it and investing the poem with the wistful sense of love and loss."

MY INTERVIEW ON NANCY'S BOOKSHELF
I discuss my play, The Shaming of the Rake, and my award-winning collection, The End of an Ordinary Life, with Nancy Wigman of North State Public Radio - give a listen!
I am a debut author with over 40 years’ experience writing, most of it technical or commercial. I began as a reporter/journalist in the 1980’s, then followed the money into technical fields. I never stopped writing poetry, short fiction and plays, and I am now renewing my original life goal of succeeding as a novelist. I publish on Medium, and my volume – THE END OF AN ORDINARY LIFE – won the Writer’s Digest Self-Published eBook prize for poetry in 2017.
I am currently working to finish and publish my first novel, WHERE YOU WILL DIE.
I write between the hours spent on work, helping my lovely wife Pat enjoy her retirement, and enjoying the beauty and antics of our girl, Coco.
