I was diagnosed with PD in 2017 at the age of 52. I first developed an interest in poetry following my diagnosis, partly to fill the void of being forced to give up my work as a veterinary surgeon. I feel very much a novice at poetry and most of my efforts are unapologetically simple.

Humour is my main coping mechanism and I try to incorporate it into my writing.

Having grown up in Ireland, I went to Edinburgh Uni and Scotland has been my home ever since. I now live in Fife with my wonderful wife Dawn and Bridie our Boxer.
