It be time to update this page…
It’s now 02/11/15 and I am a little fitter and less forlorn.
I have been published in paper nine times: seven poems and two shorts.
I also have a new title: Pop-pop! Since his arrival, my beauuuuutiful grandson, Dexter, names me thus.
I am also up to 107,000 words on Merlin Awakes and finishing final editing.
Hope you are all well.
The star date is 05/12/13.
Me and my many personas have crash landed on the planet CpSingleton. A blog world.
If you are reading this then wrap up tightly, you have to and you may experience almost all of the levels of the human condition.
The posts switch frenetically from the philosophic to the surreal in the clicking of a mouse.
If you enjoy, feel free to express your interest. If you don’t enjoy the latter still applies. I can take it!! Promise.
Normal 2011 signal resumes…
I am a – not so young – writer of poetry and prose.
I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United.
I have no strict genre. I write children’s poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up to now I have stored them for my own and my family’s viewing, under the bed where the demon watches over them with dark, sinister eyes and talons sharper than an art teacher’s tongues.
Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films.
One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition.
You should’ve seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon.
It got the desired effect!
I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage.
2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army.
Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories.
Three are published on Kindle, with another out soon.
I have published three “older people” stories: Two’s Company, the treacle Rush, Can Paradise Wait?
A family fantasy/humour: The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon.
And a collection of nonsense poems and stories called: Space Here!
Two’s Company went to number seven in the charts
Oh and Two’s Company has been published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection: End It!
Update! Life Before World’s End, a unique collection of poems and statuses that reflect the triumphs and setbacks of getting through the other side of a breakdown, is out on Kindle.
Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe.
I am also very probably alien by birth. But, don’t worry I don’t probe people. I consider that very rude.
