Welcome to my website!
My name is Sandra-Leigh Montford. I was born in Kaikohe, New Zealand in 1962. Shortly after my birth, doctors announced to my parents that I had a physical disability known as Cerebral Palsy.
At the age of ten, while living in Hokitika, I was introduced to poetry at school. After I had written a handful of poems at the direction of my teacher, I made an independent decision to be a poet. My poetry has been described as amusing, poignant, and sometimes confronting. Here are some sample Poems to tantalise you!
In recent years I have focused my spare time on refining my skills as a Performance Poet. I have appeared on television, radio, and performed in international festivals. Read my Biography for details.
