Writing & Literature



My portfolio (Digging Into the Psyche) consists of a collection of poetry and short stories. The poetry focuses on natural objects in the landscape and my short stories address issues such as: mental health, disturbed psychology and ethical dilemmas. They are also borderline science fiction stories that deal with the impact of technology on humans and society. I am concerned with advances in technology and powerful people using them in unethical ways.

My poetry considers natural forms in the landscape – a tree, the moon, a river – and reflects upon their structure and beauty, mythical stories associated with them and how they serve purpose to us: the moon acts as a compass, the river gently soothes and the tree’s apple provides food. For the future, I plan to work on a poetry collection and a series of short stories for publication.
