Several novels have been published and a collection of short stories; another collection is due from Parthian (UK) later this year. A collection of stories 'Orangeman,' was published, translated by Christian le Braz, in French by Terre de Brume last October. He has in turn translated and published original French work and has written poetry only in French for the past few years, publishing in journals and magazines in France and Brittany. He reads his poetry in both French and English. A keen musician, he has brought out two solo albums and two with the group, Parsons Hat. He will shortly take part in a play to remember the imprisoned whistleblowers, Mordechai Vanunu and Bradley Manning, and is involved in the worldwide campaign to seek the release of Frenchwoman Florence Cassez, imprisoned unjustly in Mexico.
“All poets and their friends are welcome- those who would like to read in the Open mic and those who just want to sit, listen and enjoy”
