I’m Peppy, welcome to my website – and thank you for visiting.
Lots of writer friends have told me I should have a website/blog and I confess that it has taken me quite a long time to get around to it. This is for various reasons, all of which relate directly to defects in my character: irritability (I shout at computers when I don’t understand them – and then I refuse to talk to them for a while); procrastination (sometimes I even delay my procrastination); self-doubt (would anybody actually be interested?); over-complication (hand-drawn illustrations would be nice!)… But here it is.
Mostly I write poetry and most of that is written for performance. I write observationally, aiming for humour – and I rhyme without shame! A recurring theme seems to be wine-soaked, middle-aged, middle-class womanhood – but I can’t think why. A small selection of illustrated poems can be found under the Poetry tab on the menu and I aim to expand and update this section. I will publicise any performance events should you wish to hear more.
