The Wombwell Rainbow Interview

Earlier this week I was interviewed by Paul Brookes over at The Wombwell Rainbow website.

We chatted about various writerly things including, when and why I started writing, my motivations for writing, why I write, my writing influences and favourite books and authors. You can read the interview in full by visiting this link. Davy D – The Wombwell Rainbow Interview.

Here is the first question to give you a flavour.

1. When and why did you start writing poetry?

I was given my first poetry book in 1972, (aged nine) The book was a treasure of adventure and wonder. That kicked off my love for reading and writing poetry and that passion has stayed with me. I had my first poem published in a local school’s anthology around the same time and it was fifty years before the second one went public. I have written poetry and prose during the interim. Writing has always been a personal journey for me.

Paul is interested in interviewing other writers. If you would like to take part and be featured on his website, then please get in contact with him over at his contact page.

  1. Loved reading the interview. There’s so much we presume about a writer and their writing journeys. I’m pleasantly surprised to know more about you, Davy. Truly well answered. Honesty can be very charming. 🙂

    1. Thanks Terveen, I am glad you enjoyed it. It was an enjoyable thing to do and also made me reflect on my writing journey. I think sometimes we get so wrapped up in our writing we forget to lift our heads and look at the distance we have covered. I am hoping to reveal more in future posts.
