Darren Scanlon was born in 1965 and still lives in Lancashire, England with his family.
A typical 'northern lad', his tell-it-like-it-is, sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek humour and writing style have earned him 5-Star Ratings on Amazon.
His poetry, which he has been writing since the age of 16, is published on many websites including Write Here and High On Poems where he has recieved great reviews:
"We at High On Poems are blessed to have found such a treasure as you in our midst. Your poetry is thought provoking and shakes one up. You obviously are a powerful wielder of words!"
His work to date includes:
THE BOOK OF LOOPS AND LAUGHTER - A collection of illustrated, comical poems for children and adults of all ages.
HEY UP, MATRON! - His debut novel which is a laugh-out-loud, roller-coaster ride through a day in the life of a NHS hospital ward from the point of view of the long-suffering patients and based on his own real-life experiences.
BROKEN ANGEL and BROKEN WINGS. - The first two books in his gritty crime/gangster thriller The Danny Roberts Series.
POSITIVELY POETIC VOL 1, 2, 3 & 4. - Four volumes of his on-going poetry collections.
A MOUSE'S TALE. - An beautifully illustrated children's novel, (based on one of his own poems of the same name).
ALPHABET ZOO. - A beautifully illustrated children's educational ABC book.
NB. I used to write under the pen name "Dartherino" so don't be surprised if the name crops up here and there.
