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.
