Ken Pickard was born in Liverpool in 1956 and played out his childhood in and around Merseyside.
Most of his days are now spent in East Sussex working as a village handyman with his evenings, holidays and weekends affording him the time to write songs and poetry.
Inspired by the conflicting views of Paul Dirac and Richard Feynman regarding the art of poetry, he likes to read difficult and dry books on science and philosophy to see where they might rhyme. His motto is ‘be positive’ which coincidentally is also his blood type.
Ken lives in Ringmer with his wife Sarah and his sons, Harvey and Lewis.
