Demolishing the Oats

Demolishing the Oats was published by Ginninderra Press and is available from their website. Alternatively, you can purchase a signed copy from me. The poems were collated from my journal entries and represent little pieces of my life.
'Inside Oliver, there is beauty and the magic of words. With immense patience and persistence, he brings his interior view into sight.' - Jocelyn Munro, Artist and Poet.
I Am Wolf
($25.00 plus postage)
I Am Wolf is my fourth published book. The poems in this book are about me, and what it's like to be me. The wolf call is my trademark communication sound, which I make when I am happy, excited and feeling well.
'Oliver's poetry and artwork offer us an enormous insight into his life, his world, and what it means to be Oliver. He's the central part of his wolf pack, and with his wolf call he beckons us to join him.' - Shannon Lott, support worker and friend.
($25.00 plus postage)
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.
($45.00 plus postage)
This book is a collaboration between myself and Barbara Bayly - Barbara's stunning photographs with 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.
Hear from myself, Janelle Sampson and Sharon Kernot at my recent book launch for 'Snapshot', giving a small insight into the methods I use for my writing.
