I am a British writer from a little town called Melbourne, in Derbyshire, England. My poems and short stories appear regularly in literary journals, and I have published two novels.
My work often involves characters who struggle to communicate with the people around them, and this idea forms the basis of my first novel, 'The Entire Animal', which was published in 2006 by The Waywiser Press.
My second novel, 'Thoughts of Maria', published in 2013 by Open Books, continues this theme, but also touches on wider issues such as drugs, arranged marriages and sexual obsession.

I'm absolutely delighted to announce that my little poetry collection ‘The boy and his animals’ has gone into its second edition. The new version is slighter smaller and neater in appearance, with much improved print quality. It also has 50% less ‘f’ words (thanks to Mike Stocks from Anon magazine for his editorial suggestion). The word ‘sow’ is now spelt correctly in the final poem (I’m still cringing about that one!) and the mysterious pink smudges on the back cover are no more.
It is now also more widely accessible and can be purchased in the following ways:
From Lulu.com as a PDF download, for £1.99 (or international equivalent): www.lulu.com/content/1916891
From Lulu.com, in book form, for £3.99 (or equivalent) plus P&P: www.lulu.com/content/1916891
Direct from the author for £4.99 including delivery (UK orders only - an order form can be downloaded from my website at www.gregoryheath.co.uk).
The Lulu website also allows the opportunity to preview the book. Feel free to spread the word!
