His first full length book of poetry through N Press 'Return to Kemptown' in 2010 and the second book, a split book with Jeff Dawson (aka Jeffarama) 'A Means to an End' was published at the end of 2011. His third, a split book with Nick Armbister came out in April 2014 called 'Europa' which covers stories of how war impacts ordinary people.
Next up will be his second full length book 'the end of summer' which'll probably with a touch of luck in 2014 or 2015 and will be the end of a sequence first started with Return to Kemptown.

He has side projects such as Twisted Promise (with P.R. Mcdowell), Europa (with Nick Armbister) and A Means to an End II (with Jeffarama!)and the setting up of the Unity Media Collective.

The Way Out
Words gobbled out across
The middle of woodland
Nestled in a portal
Of forgotten bed stories,
Half opened at dusk
Bent yellow in static
Kicking leaves onto rocks
Stung in maddened tongue
Crying for a way out
In broken poetry.
