My name is Dominic Bond, 36 years of age, recently returned from travelling around Asia and currently living in Basingstoke, a fairly boring dormitory town about 40 miles south west of London in the UK, where I do a very untroubling data entry job. I have written some poetry in the past and have recently rekindled my interest again. I was published in the 2013 Holocaust Poetry issue of Poetry Super Highway.
