Andrew Spacey has been a regular contributor to online writing sites and print magazines for years. He writes mainly about his passion for poetry, drama and travel and combines this creativity with teaching Drama and English.

Andrew has published poems on blogs, (bolts of silk)(the red ceiling), in small book form and has articles published in the Guardian newspaper (UK). He also writes for Constant Content.

He is the author of two books, 21 Bird Poems and Love Songs To A Camel, a book of nonsense poetry. Both are available on Amazon.

As well as a keen interest in literature and the performing arts, Andrew enjoys sports and cooking. His claim to fame on the culinary side is that he once made real Italian ice cream with eggs and coffee. And his guests even managed to eat it. His one regret is that he didn't make enough.

Andrew walks every day, at least two miles, and is convinced that this is the main reason he stays so healthy. So far. He also believes that walking inspires people to create.

'Walking is a therapy and helps the mind cope with all manner of things. The more you walk the more creative you could become.'
