Life is all but a vast array of Colours is a collection of two short poems designed to be read alone. They are short, but hopefully allow your imagination to realise that there are many aspects to this world.

The Clock Girl is a poem about abuse, loneliness and despair; a struggle to escape by the most severe of actions.

These really are quite well defined as hitting and tragic. I liked the first the most even though the last caused that beautiful cover. I wouldn't have picked it up for the first one but I appreciated the tangible creepiness of 'The Clock Girl'. Neither were light but both had a feeling of a good ending.
The Clock Girl has amazing imagery and repetition which added such splendour. In contrast you felt that 'Life is all but a vast array of Colours' was fresh and more emotive. It was reflective of

I own both the ebook and the physical version of this wonderful short poetry collection. I have read both poems contained within many times and I find each to be haunting and beautiful. The fact that buying this book helps support Pancreatic Cancer UK only adds to it's appeal, and the note at the end concerning the author's step-mum, Liz (who I understand tragically died from the illness) is wonderfully touching. The paper version in particular is a real treasure, and now has pride of place on ...more

Sometimes you just feel the need to shut yourself away and read some good poetry and these two poems by Dan are crackers.

The first poem, ‘The Clock Girl,’ tells a rhythmic story of a girl whose life appears to be frozen in time by fear. She focuses very much on the present; on the man who has harmed her and on the clicking clock in a vast empty house, where it appears that she is trapped alone with him. We also know that he is an unkempt man, brutally strong and has already broken windows and do

I’m not typically comfortable reading poetry and so I usually avoid it. The beautiful title and cover of this book drew me in, and I was curious about the contents of the poems. My imagination was delighted with the spectrum of visualizations each poem provided. The poems were on my mind hours after finishing them. I can easily see myself returning to this book again and again. I would readily read more poems from this author.

Dan is an author of nonsense, mostly. Some like it though, which is good enough for him. Yarns include Here Lies Love, The Caseworker's Memoirs, and The Black Petal.

Dan lives in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire (England) with his young daughter.

Dan grew up reading Enid Blyton's The Famous Five series, secretly coming up with his own inventive adventures, and R.L Stine's The Goosebump series, before turn
