Current Projects

My main project is The Trafalgar Times, which I founded and am editor of, which is a quarterly newsletter on all things Age of Sail. We send free copies out to schools and organisations, and we send a parcel of historical books out every quarter to a random school.

I founded it to help pull together intersesting facts, book reviews, model releases, videos, and more into an easy to digest format. You can find it on Kindle and also the yearly Volume in paperback.

The Trafalgar Times

My other projects are still in development, but I am hoping for some exciting news later this summer.

My first eBook is finally up and for sale, though it is a collection of humourous verse rather than any of the sci-fi stuff. I am hoping to raise a few pennies with it though for a local hospice so please buy it for them. 16 Poems, with an extra 5 thrown in free, for less than a quid!

Finishing projects, must finish projects.


The Word 3 at the Continental, Preston, is on 20th September 2014.


Sorry about the lack of updates, been working hard trying to get pieces finished. I've also been adding a few bits of verse to my Youtube channel.

See here for my channel


Second in Preston Poet's Society Pomfret Cup, Perhaps I can rhyme after all.


Wow, how much fun was Penwortham Live. Had a fantastic time, and such a steep learning curve for my performance pieces. You can find some of there here from the Saturday Night session at Snack & Chat.

Thanks to everyone who organised, particpated, helped, and most of all, turned up to support us.


Added a verse on aging for you to peruse.

I'm taking part in Penwortham Live in April this year.  Just have to prepare something now, it will be verse


Finally submitted a little piece to the LeftinPreston website and they have used it.


Added a section in the verses for the 'Places to Visit' section of verses I am doing for free places to visit around the Uk. I am trying to get a bit of fact into the verse to help encourage people to make the most of our wonderful country.


Wow, just won Britain's Best Loved Word 2012. Thanks Chambers and Readers Digest.

My nominated word - Higgledy-piggledy


Finally realised I'm a a Versifier on the sly, rather than the over-glamorous term (for me) of poet. You can also see me (well, you can hear me) in action here at Word Soup.

The final versions of the FantasyCon 2012 Verses are done. You can get a PDF here.

And you can see me mucking them up on YouTube here


As I'm at FantasyCon 2012 I have ended up writing some poems reflecting the panels and what I have picked up. They are just a bit of fun but if you attended any of the panels you might find them amusing. Have a look here. I will properly edit them and polish them at a later date.
