As an Author

While it is true there is a plague of writers in the world, I felt it my duty to contribute to the problem.
On Boxing Day 2003 I decided it was about time I took my inclination to impose my words and thoughts onto the world a little more seriously. With much haste I scribbled off a 1000 word piece to submit as part of my application to do the Professional Writing and Editing course at RMIT. I have since slightly revised and edited that piece: "In a Nutshell".
The course is well respected and only a very small percentage of those who apply are successful in their application — surprisingly I was one of that small percentage.

Annual Card Poems 2001 to 2009 I can't remember the first year I made an end of year card poem, but the first one I have reference to is 2001. My first end of year chapbook was produced in 2010, but it was rather slight compared to what they have become.
Copies of my chapbooks produced from 2012 to present are available to purchace from Anne Bonny's Locker
