“The storyteller makes the story the instrument of its characters. Over cumulative tellings, the teller’s link to these characters becomes intimate, sometimes so intimate that their very being is drawn over the threshold where tale and reality meet.” (Grant 2001)

After five years of performing stories and poems here at the HoBB and at public readings and slams I’ve started to record a few. Here’s a link to my first – Bellarach.
Vids next, although I don’t know much about editing so things get uploaded unedited, raw / first take. Don’t just take my word for it, go and look at our first animation film shot at the HoBB for the World of Water charity whilst making pizza in the dark.
I like to collaborate on all my projects and Little People Books launched with the help of fellow artists Peter Scott and Mitch Mitchell.
When in Bishop’s Castle, call in at the first Poetry Pharmacy in the World
