Lauries poetry readings


Here’s Laurie reading his poems at a local event. Laurie thrills and entertain at many locations promoting his books while raising money for Help for Heroes.

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

Poet Reveals All

Poet Reveals All

At last Laurie’s much requested and awaited sixth book is here! Following the success of his previous books, he once more fearlessly reveals an eclectic range of topics gleaned from curiously scanning our world, human behaviours and maybe you?

From heart tingling romance, awkwardness of intimate moments, to nostalgic reflection and  tragedies in life, Laurie tackles it all!


Working in psychiatry for nearly 30 years has given Laurie, aka The Psychy Poet, a unique style of poetic reporting, (now heard on National, BBC and local radio stations), that bristles from the heart on real life issues. This approach resonates with everyday people, including poetry newcomers, who are now hooked alongside others appreciating a genuine down to earth style.
Proudly presented by My Voice Publishing who see their author excel again, possibly touching deeper into his readers souls with powerful, emotive verse. From heart tingling romance, awkwardness of intimate moments, to nostalgic reflection and  tragedies in life, Laurie tackles it all!
Those lovable and mischievous bears Ted and Beth created by Laurie, are again included with more amusing antics. Thus all in all this wonderful book is packed with something for everybody, whilst the author remains confident of the readers enjoyment as his fantastic journey continues!

Revealing Reflections

In your journeys across the years
You may meet various emotions,
That will ebb and flow all about
Like the spray from oceans.
For with love, life and tragedy
Needing so much deep reflection.
Observations can be quite helpful,
When held up for inspection.
As it’s difficult to see ourselves
Even if very honestly tried.
So best inner exposures come,
From perceptive eyes outside.

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.

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!

Listen to Laurie read excerpts from Life Presented in Verse.

Laurie’s poems are now read on National Radio as well as published internationally.

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.
