I will be appearing on Nick Coffer's afternoon show in connection with BBC Three Counties on Thursday 26th October 2017 at 12.30pm to discuss my writing and hidden disabilities. You can listen either online at http://www.bbc.co.uk/threecountiesradio or through the tuning frequency 103.8FM BBC Three Counties Radio.

I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to raise awareness of living with Crohn's disease and dyspraxia, and having a dad who has primary-progressive multiple sclerosis. Thank you everyone for your support.

This week I had the confidence to get involved in The Poetry Society's 'Poetry Unplugged' Open Mic Night. This took place at The Poetry Cafe located in Covent Garden, London.

I read my poems 'Oh Butterfly' and 'Bubbles', which received a very positive reaction from the crowd. It was an amazing experience and I look forward to attending and reading again soon.
