Hi there I'm Gareth Lancaster, the author of all the poetry on the Fizzy Funny Fuzzy web site. I've been writing children's poetry since around 2000 and started by writing them initially for my daughter and then also my son. I live in Derbyshire in the United Kingdom with my wife, children and one cat called Gonzo. We did have another cat, who is sadly now longer with us, but was the inspiration for my Bod, My Fat Cat poem.
Fizzy Funny Fuzzy is all about poetry for kids of any age. We all like to laugh and hopefully my poetry on this web site will help you do just that.
My poetry has been used in numerous educational publications across the world, including as set text on examinations. In 2013 it is also appearing on the CBeebies show Magic Hands. I also hope to publish a first collection of poetry later this year.
