Retired now to spend more time writing. A very
coloured childhood and early life prompts me to be a
rather 'nostalgic' writer. Born in Sidcup, Kent moved to
The Medway Towns on marriage in 1954 to a Rochester boy.
Several poems published in anthologies. Three books to
date, all completely sold out, 'Inky Fingers'
'Intimate Frillies' and the last one in 2000 'Bridging
The Millennium'. Book number four should be ready
(The Crow) Crowther
Since 1993 I've had approx 16 poems published in
various anthologies, I was also involved with a Celtic
Folk Rock Band, I was the writer of the only track we
laid down in studio.
Enjoy playing the Recorder and Bodhran, as much as I
enjoy my writing. I attend at the local folk club most
weeks, and try out my new poems on the poor unsuspecting
souls. I also spend far to much time sat at my PC.
Poetic Licence is an anthology of verse, by
Tony (The Crow) Crowther. It is a mixture of emotions, on
many levels. Please Enjoy.
