A CIRENCESTER man has published his first collection of poems.

At The Storm's Edge, by Frank McMahon are poems about love and fury with a keen sense of the natural world.

They are inspired by children, as Frank set up and managed a SureStart children’s centre in Kettering before moving to the Cotswolds.

Frank, who has two children and six grandchildren of his own, said: “There is nothing like working with and for young children.

"They constantly teach you to look at the world with fresh eyes and be open to new experiences.”

Frank's book is available to buy from Amazon and palewellpress.co.uk
