“I’d love to come and read at your event, just drop me a line below and we’ll work it out”.
Poet Reflects Your World

Following on from the success of his previous books, this seventh presentation from Laurie again bristles with his down to earth poetic takes of everyday life, our world and the behaviours of people in it.
Laurie again bristles with his down to earth poetic takes of everyday life
Again requested and welcomed by an increasingly appreciative audience as Laurie has now had his poems read on national radio, and also featured in articles, magazines and other publications in the U K and elsewhere.
Proudly offered once more by My Voice Publishing, The Psychy Poet, Laurie’s aka due to his expansive career in psychiatry, demonstrates a unique ability to resonate and touch on the humour, love and tragedies in life, often illuminating darker depths of people’s inner self with his words as he accompanies them along in reflective mode.

There may be nostalgia and surprises
When your inner world is revealed,
By the peeling away of barriers
That many secrets had concealed.
For everyone has private thoughts
Perhaps buried deep and never seen,
But confronted by observing words
You may learn what they can mean.
So allow perceptive insights in
To a world where they are known,
As it may be comforting to discover
Some fears are not yours alone.
Write a Poem for You
Get Laurie to write you a poem for that special occasion.
Each of Laurie’s poetry collections is a mix of wit and wisdom, of wrath and reflection. His latest is no exception. There is something for all his readers. However, this most recent effort shows a stronger focus on the form of the poem itself. Laurie improves with every book.
(Author of The Fish on my Ear)
I was hooked on Laurie’s poems from the beginning, and think his fabulous work is both inspirational and thought provoking.
Like a good red wine that gets better with age, so do Laurie’s poetry skills, and whilst they were really good at the start, his latest book and offerings are another fantastic achievement that should be a bestseller. I really enjoy Laurie’s work!
Well, Laurie has done it again with this brilliant book of poems, Life Presented in Verse, which is officially The Psychy Poet’s fifth book in the series.
His poems cover such a wide range of topics that there’s something for everyone. Laurie’s carefully chosen words are thought provoking, insightful but also fun and reflective in their content.
I’d highly recommend this book as a gift for any fellow poetry lovers. Enjoy….
We look forward to the next edition.
