About The Poet

Living as a poet in the Black Mountains sounds romantic, but as a stockman its hard realities can taint existence. This man’s poetry can be measured against a life, at times bleak, and a culture, often under threat; amongst its bone and sinew lie the fragments of creation. His books ‘Tug’, ‘Blind Cwm’ and ‘Lucifer’s Cradle’, bring these hills to home.
