Poetry & Non-Fiction

A collection of poems written between 1980 and 2017, about love, loss and how Richard was only the beginning.

Sad, funny and witty poems inspired by a life time of love affairs; some good and some awful. If this is your story too, you will love this book.

If you buy my book, and I hope you will leave a review – just one word will do and helps me enormously. Thanks.

I underestimated the pleasure of research, when documenting the lives of three generations of wealthy merchants and mariners and their interconnected family relationships in Norfolk in the 1700s. Most are buried in St. Nicholas Chapel in King’s Lynn.

They lived in a world of fresh piped water, heated homes and good food, and many lived well into old age. They owned land and sailing ships, which were built by local craftsmen, and the mariners traded around the coast and into Europe. They had fine wines from Porto and furs from Novgorod. One of their craft was captured by Pirates and the sailors held for ransom.

The completed research can now be viewed in King’s Lynn archives and local museums.
