Why do you write?
Because I am a hopeless dreamer who loves the escapism writing gives you. You can be anyone, do anything, go anywhere, have anything – you are only limited by the extent of your imagination.
What’s the meaning behind your blog name?
Ooh, this is a hard one as my blog name is quite personal – let’s just say it reflects some of the themes in my poems about love that you can’t always have…
Why did you start your blog?
Because it was cheaper than therapy, ha ha!
Where is your favourite place to write?
Literally anywhere. If I have a sudden flash of inspiration, I’ll grab whatever’s to hand to write with/on and get writing.
Describe your favourite colour without saying what it is
It’s the colour of his eyes
The colour of my tears
The colour of summer skies
The colour of midnight fears
It’s the colour of sootless fire
The colour of me and you
The colour of my desire
In any type of hue.
How do you deal with negative comments?
It depends on where the comments came from, what they’re about and who made them but if I can I prefer to laugh about things rather than think about the negative.
What motivates you?
Loads of things…family, friendship, love, happiness, success – I could keep going!
What is your writing goal?
Writing things that other people like to read…and one day maybe to write a brilliant book of poetry or a novel.

Constant Variable for brilliantly written, clever and heart-felt poetry.
