Laurie the Psychy Poet – raising money for Help the Heroes

Thanks for taking the time to read this brief biography, I hope it is of interest and gives some background and amusement. It also describes and is insightful as to how my views and poetry have come about and why my work is in such everyday, down to earth language!

I was born in Walthamstow East London during the adjusting post WW 2 years. I remember my parents affectionately as being very happy, supportive and making jokes though they were quite poor and the “bathroom” was a tin tub hanging on a nail in the garden!  Believing we are products of our environment and experiences, I reflect how this past has influenced a fairly recent embarkation of poetry writing.

Supporting and donating to the excellent armed forces charity Help for Heroes from book sales & fund raising has not only amplified the charity awareness but also led to some healthy donations to them….

I really hope you like my work that may make you cry, laugh, reflect and even get angry! I will welcome this as I prefer people to express their emotions, rather than join the “shoulder shruggers” that life passes by. Most of all though, please enjoy!
