He's always been interested in poetry and produced a first small volume in 1976 (Whitlathe Walrus), by New Rivers Press in New York. Since then has completed four more poetry volumes and some fiction (Tales out of School -- about teaching in London)... Presently in Vancouver (BC); enjoying his yacht club and some summer tennis, with seasonal attendances at West Vancouver cricket club. But every year manages to visit his daughter and ole pals in the UK...
