My poem ‘Wojtek’ the hero bear was the official poem for the unveiling of the statue in Princes Street Gardens. I also create film poems and include a link to youtube for my poem ‘Shadow Rabbits’ which is dedicated to my younger children Roisin, now 17 and Jennifer, a budding young artist, 14. I also have three older children and have always liked writing and performing my poetry”.
