I am a Scot now living in Israel on a communal settlement, married to a Yemenite, with three children. I received my B.A. and M.A. from Haifa University and have just completed my Ph.D at the same university. I have been writing poetry ever since I can remember, although my early work is not very good. I took a Creative Writing class several years ago, and now teach Creative Writing at college, and these have sharpened my sense of creativity.
