As a child Bill wrote stories in a tool-shed. Eventually he was let out.
Bill was told at school that he had a remarkable talent but he still hasn't worked out what they meant.
During those difficult teenage years he wrote poetry and received encouragement from poet, author and broadcaster, John Pudney.
He studied English at Hull University and was tutored by (the now) poet laureate Andrew Motion who once said of Bill`s essay on William Blake, "strangely garbled."
Bill self-published a small book of poems a long time ago and likes to pretend that it never happened.
Now he writes Flash Fiction.
His work has appeared in print and on the Internet:
