Technology Bytes Back - Peter Roe

Peter Roe lives in Bridport on the Jurassic Coast but was born and raised a ‘Northern Lad’ in Buxton in the Peak District. He is a poet, writer, film-maker and self confessed nerd who likes to shatter peoples misconceptions about computer geeks and anoraks!

 

Many of Peter’s poems come out of that bit of the world where technology meets people and the mayhem that follows. In this, his debut collection he also turns his attention to Dr Roberts, Mary Anning, Judge Jeffreys, tractors, moustaches, mental illness, medicine, diets, food, nature and impossible cats.
