I was born at Ackworth near Pontefract in Yorkshire but live now in Hyde, Cheshire on the edge of the Pennines with my wife, Christine. Our youngest son, Craig attended Arden College, Southport, for four years and now lives in a supported house in Hyde. Our other son, Ian spent a number of years at Redford Court, a rehabilitation centre in Liverpool, following brain injury due to a road-traffic accident some years ago. He now lives in Ashton-under-Lyne. Penny, our Manchester terrier died in 2002, aged 13. I've been active on the Small Press Scene for more than 30 years, first editing Headland and then New Hope International. My poetry has been published in many countries and been translated into Croatian, German, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese & Romanian. I am an honorary member of the International Writers & Artists Association. I am a life member of and have served on the Council of the Yorkshire Dialect Society. After nearly a quarter of a century working in insurance, I took early retirement. Now I keep myself busy taking photographs and blogging. In 2006 I received the TED SLADE AWARD FOR SERVICE TO POETRY. I have a personal blog, Ackworth born, gone West and a photoblog sithenah. I also maintain Hyde Daily Photo and Old Hyde. I can now be followed on Twitter.
