Born 1955 into a working-class family of eight in a remote country village in Norfolk, England.
I had a very sheltered life, a shy boy with no friends or educational merits. My brutal Father used to physically and mentally abuse me all through my childhood and into my early teens. My escape was to write where I could do anything I wanted and make my dreams come true within my stories. After writing my first poem at the early age of five, I have never looked back. My Father would call me useless and all I wanted to do was to prove to myself...I was not.
