The Launch of my new book, Makin a Mackem-the journey of running into my skin, will be on Sunday 26th November at 4pm in Portinscale Village Hall. Please reserve tickets in advance via the link below. There's a small charge just to cover costs. You'll find details of the book and the event in the link. There'll be live music, talking, eating and drinking, book signing and readings. It will prepare us for the winter nights and provide you with a good fireseide read.
(In case you don't know - a Mackem is a person from Sunderland in the north east of England.)

If you or your organisation would like me speak, perform or host an event, either outside or inside, please get in touch. I have given a variety of talks and performances to climbing and running clubs, WI's, Keswick Mountain Festival, made several appearences at Kendal Mountain Literature Festival and Maryport Literature Festival as well as performing my own one woman theatre show hosted by Wordsworth Grasmere. I also run writing workshops combining outdoor activities with creative work. I enjoy engaging with people and have a particular passion for combining sport, art and literature. 
Borrowdale Poetry Walks
bd poetry walk

Join me for a memorable experience of this beautiful and fascinating place in the heart of the Lake District. The walk will take you to some special gems of Borrowdale including the summit of Castle Crag and the famous ancient Yew trees near Seathwaite. Taking things at a leisurely pace I will perform a selection of my poetry along the lovely route, which takes in woods and a small summit and a valley walk. This makes for a beautiful experience looking at Borowdale through the lens of poetry. Many people say they are not fans of poetry, but hearing it outside and while on a journey brings it life in a way which adds new dimensions to the experience of the work. I can arrange dates for small goups by request.
