What I do:
Full Time Writer
A little more about me:
I am a full time writer living in Wrexham. I have ghost written seven books; have two books of poems published and won the John Tripp Award for Spoken Poetry. As a performer I have acted for Fluellen Theatre Company and gained five star reviews for my performances of Dylan Thomas at the Edinburgh Fringe. As a playwright twenty two of my plays been performed. Some grew out of community projects but I have also had 6 plays staged at Grand Theatre Swansea and other plays at The Curve theatre Leicester, Thwaites Theatre Blackburn, Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Twm O'r Nant Denbigh, MOMA and Llangollen Fringe. I am currently running three Creative Writing courses, two in Wrexham and one in Mold.
I am a life long fan of Wrexham football club and have two fabulous grandsons who follow Preston North End. You can't control everything in life
Projects I’m working on:
Have been commissioned to write a new play for National Trust about Squire Yorke of Erddig, Wrexham which will be performed in the Summer.
In the past I have produced several Workers' Poems where I have worked with groups of workers and from conversations with them have created group poems. I have been asked to work with the players of Wrexham Football Club to produce their own poem.
I am running workshops with a group of writers to produce a piece called Wrexham on My Mind for the Wrexham Literature Festival at the end of April
