About the author

I have a wide range of interests that I write about.  Writing is my hobby and my real work is supporting people with Learning Disabilities and Special Needs live life to the full. I have worked in this vocation for around 14 years.

Before that I spent time studying  at Keele University, Staffordshire, UK where I gained B.A (Hons) Degree in American Studies and English Literature.  I spent my earlier years as a bricklayer and built up a small building business before an arm injury forced me to find a different way of earning a living.

I love being out and about in the countryside and exploring new places and often write about the places I visit.   I have a deep affinity with the natural world, animals, plants, trees, birds, and all other of God’s creatures and a healthy respect for spiders, scorpions, snakes and anything that stings, or bites.

While every picture tells a story, a photograph is just an instant of time frozen and the beholder will make what they will of it.  What was then will not be what is now or what it will be in the future. Meaning is entirely made in the mind of the beholder and may mean one thing to one person and something else to another.

Therefore always be wary of photographs they may not be what they seem.  They may be only one line in the many stanzas that make up a long poem.

Meanwhile and thankfully, the ballad of zteve t evans continues to unfold.

  1. Zteve, Enchanted Conversation has their midsummer-themed fiction submission period right now (ending soon: 30 May). You might like to check them out; fwiw, I enjoy reading them (there’s a fair amount of poetry, but also some fiction), and the lady who orchestrates it all, Dr. Kate Wolford, is very professional and knowledgeable. If you wish, you can navigate about her site from here: http://www.fairytalemagazine.com/2016/05/window-for-midsummer-submissions.html

  2. Very interesting work – ideal to help me teach ‘myths and heroes’ to my final year baccalaureate students here in sunny Lille. Just a question … when did you graduate from Keele? I did English Lit and French language there myself maybe we shared a lecture hall!!??

    • Thank you, greatly appreciated! Well, I started a 4 year course including the Keele Foundation Year in September 1991 and graduated in July 1995. You never know we may have sat in at the same lecture but it really is lovely to hear that you went to Keele so thanks for letting me know.

  3. Hey I want to use your salamander mythology article for a project. I’m trying to format it for MLA and I was wondering if you had a publisher or sponsor?

  4. Hi – could you please tell me where you got your image for the myth of Robin Hood, which I believe is from Gaston Phoebus’ Livre du Chasse.
    Many thanks
