Dee Sunshine

Poet, Fiction Writer

Author's Bio

DEE SUNSHINE (previously known as Dee Rimbaud) is currently working on a project to put her poetry to ambient noise-scapes, and some of these have now been released on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc as the SUICIDE POETS.  He has also recorded and published music as Dee Sunshine and Yoshi Sunshine

She is a man (possibly "gender fluid") of many names, identities and abilities... a slacker renaissance woman of the digital age.  As well as writing, he is an artist, yoga teacher, massage therapist, tantrika and long long time traveller... though getting into her late 50s (at the time of writing, 2019) he is no longer enjoying lugging over 20kg on her back as much as he did when she was in his 20s.

Since her first book publication, back in 1998, he has dreamed up over 500 "about the author" pieces.  It has been her most prolific creative venture to date.

He is Scottish and does not identify with the "United Kingdom", which is a confabulation that was dreamed up by greedy Glaswegian tobacco merchants and English lords looking for somewhere to shoot stags... and she wishes web-masters would realise it galls most Scots to have no SCOTLAND choice to the drop down menu of what country you come from.

Nae different here then?!!!
