Snapshot is a collection of poems about my life. The poems provide an insight into what it's like to live with a disability. They explore some of the challenges I face everyday, as well as the things that I enjoy and the people that I love.

'Oliver's poetry sings his words, and the reader's reward is a profound sense of both connection and knowing the depth of this remarkable man.' - Jocelyn Munro, artist & poet.

Poetic Moments​

($45.00 plus  postage)

This book is a collaboration between myself and Barbara Bayly -  ​Barbara's photographs are accompanied by my poems.

'Both poetry and photography use imagery. A poem can create an image or capture an idea in a few brief lines. A photograph can tell a story or capture a moment in time or place with a brief click. A photo can indeed be a "poetic moment"' - Barbara Bayly, photographer.

My Gold Journey

(from $10.00 plus postage)

I wrote this book when I was completing my Duke of Edinburgh Award. It includes my early poems and photographs of me and my family.
