Losing Boundaries

You can preview my recent poetry collection Losing Boundaries here:

http://www.knivesforksandspoonspress.co.uk/losingboundaries.html

Losing Boundaries is a collection of poems and prose poems about place and identity. They link places and memory of places ( North Wales / North Manchester / Newcastle Upon Tyne / North Pennines)

Again, as with my Strangeways collection, many of these poems are based on  photographs taken on walks. So here are some of the photos to accompany the book.

Well, though well intentioned, some of my music links don’t work. Sorry about that; there must be some copyright issues blocking the links. I’ll sort that out soon, though do feel free to search out these songs if you wish in the meantime – nos dawch!
