Kolin Richmond-Hughes's first collection of poems concerns itself with cats, loss, the environment, gender issues and melancholy. He found that writing poetry was a vehicle to channel his anxieties and observations of his personal and external world. Brought up in the North West of England, he writes about his own battles with depression and about sexual identity...through a raw and sometimes witty narrative. He is an inclusionist poet who strives to bring the reader into his melancholic but hopefully light-hearted world. Poems from a Melancholic Panda is the alter ego inner narrative that gives a voice to these original verses.
Kolin was born in North West England and studied at Cansfield High School, Wigan Technical College, Winstanley College and South Trafford College. He has worked as a T.V. background artist and a corporate DJ, as well as a civil servant. He lived in Athens for two years, working as a singer and semi-professional dancer. He has spent the last five years writing and addressing personal health issues. The author auditioned for The London Contemporary and The Ballet Rambert. He is a qualified holistic therapist, an advocate of environmental issues, plays the trumpet (strictly for own pleasure), and enjoys 'funky' house parties and quiet nights at home listening to jazz. He finally 'came out' when he was twenty-one.
