a quarter-century just might be enough

I've been writing poetry for 25 years now, scribing my very first poem on July 28, 1992 and my most recent on August 4, 2017. This was not intended as an activity that would continue into my senior decades, yet well into my fifty-fourth year and having settled into a more peaceful and coastal surrounding, the toil of publishing my writing and the live performances and promotion that accompany it have left me very tired, and considering the relatively ample amount of books that I’ve released via Harmonia Press, I’m feeling that this body of work makes a sufficient statement of what I’ve been endeavouring to say as a poet and writer. As a result, I’ll be stepping out of the literary circle and focusing on small-town living with my wife and our cats. Several of my books will still be available from the Harmonia Press website:

Wishing you all the best and thank you for reading what I’ve put to page both then and now.

Kindest Regards
