About the Author

I am Stephen Robert Sutton a writer of novels, artist and writer of poems, I have been writing poems since 1987 and accumulated hundreds of them since this time. I was born in Birmingham and raised in Lichfield in Staffordshire, I moved to Manchester in my early thirties and settled there. The earlier part of my education was at Chadsmead infant and junior school and at Netherstowe comprehensive school, I am dyslexic and dyspraxic which was unheard of at that time in the sixties and early seventies. I educated myself using comics such as the Dandy and the Beano, I later read the American Mad comics, which were easier to understand. Due to not getting the grades at school and college I went back to education in my late thirties and obtained a diploma in welfare studies and other subjects and went on to the university of Salford and graduated as a qualified nurse. It was all about self directed study which I had done as a child, I could deal with that without any problem, although I was assessed by a educational psychologist for dyslexia. At last someone recognised my disability and acted accordingly I did get support by the equality and diversity office at university. When I started work in the early seventies I had not got a clue what to do, I was in and out of jobs which was easy then due to the amount of jobs around. Eventually I settled down at twenty one as a care assistant in a residential home called Nearfield house in Lichfield I was there for thirteen years until I moved to Pontins in Blackpool and then to Ashton Under Lyne in greater Manchester. I have mentioned my education in Manchester and becoming a nurse which I still am now, I am almost retired and hope to pursue my writing which means more novels and more poetry. The last poem is in memory of a my best friend Richard Howarth who recently past away, November 2019.
