Nigel Derbyshire grew up in Norfolk, is well travelled & now lives in Cambridgeshire.

An eater of cheese, drinker of red wine & ale, he is a reformed lover of people and conversation. Always adventuring into the textures of life, Nigel occasionally remembers to write some of it down.

Crafting dense free verse poetry, Nigel meanders the boundaries between his internal reality and the external perception of reality.
