Born in Runcorn in Cheshire, Ian lived for some years in London and has travelled extensively around the world. After returning home he began writing poetry and was made Halton Poet of the Year. The poems in Greenway to the River span the years since then, often looking back to former experience for inspiration.
Ian also founded the Halton Poetry Writing Group to share his interest in writing poetry with other local writers. Some of the poems in Greenway to the River are from evenings spent with the group in the local library.
