In 2004 I was told that my eye sight was failing and that I would become completely blind within five years. My sight actually only took twenty one months to fail. During that period I started writing as a way of dealing with my situation. Not only did I find that writing helped me get through it, I also began enjoying writing individual poems and short stories. This book brings together all of the poems written during that period, covering my journey through sight loss, my feelings during the experience and coming out the other side. The book also includes a second collection containing several stand alone pieces which were inspired by life experiences, historical events, my love of fantasy or simply for the enjoyment of writing. The Edge of Darkness is available in both Kindle and audio book formats. The audio book version is read by the immensely talented Jonathan Keeble.
