The Boy Who Played in the Clouds by Lee Harral
Born in Manchester, U.K.
I've always enjoyed being creative--writing, photography, video production, audio narrations. As a child I was very interested in art. I grew up as a single child. My imagination was a valuable ally.
My style is abstract, dreamlike, surreal. I often write about love (a subject that fascinates me). There is often a sadness present, a longing. I love to paint pictures with words. The tone is often dark.
I have produced videos for several of my writer friends. Several years ago I became friends with the writer and artist Maddie Holliday Von Stark (Wisconsin, USA) who provided me with support and encouragement. She has been a major influence.
Favourite writers: Sylvia Plath (massively important), William Burroughs, Daphne du Maurier, Edgar Allan Poe, Oscar Wilde, Sheridan Le Fanu.
