Deborah Tyler-Bennett was born in Nottinghamshire and now divides her time between Loughborough, where she lives, and Brighton, where some of her work is set. Her volumes of poetry are Clark Gable in Mansfield (King’s England, 2003), Pavilion (Smokestack, 2010), Revudeville (King’s England, 2011) and the chapbook collection Mytton …Dyer…Sweet Billy Gibson… (Nine Arches Press, 2011). She won the Hugh McDiarmid Trophy at the 2001 Scottish International Open Poetry Competition, and the long-poem prize in the same competition a few years later. She has had over 400 poems and short fictions published in the UK and internationally and also regularly performs her work. Her poem ‘Clark Gable in Mansfield’ was recently included in Clark Gable in Pictures: Candid Images of the Actor’s Life, by Gable’s biographer, Chrystopher J. Spicer (McFarland Books, 2011).
