I've Sold My First Poem.

Yes I never thought I'd ever write those words either. But after several rewrites at the request of the editors on Every Day Poets I finally had a poem accepted. Not sure on the publishing date yet but will put the link up here once I know.

The piece is entitled, 'The Machine That Makes You Dream'.

I've only started writing poetry that I felt confident enough to display for the past year and never thought it would break out of my notebook and blog.


I wrote the poems for my own enjoyment but recently I've found the courage and encouragement to dip my toes in the rippling waters of the poetry world.


I'm really happy at this first small step and hope you enjoy it too when it becomes available.

Horror in all its forms. Ghosts to monsters, books to films, reviews, interviews and the occasional story or two.
