I have written poetry since I was little girl. I find that it helps me make sense of life and death, and all the beautiful and painful things in between. Poetry is a way to speak when you don't quite know what to say. It is a way to express complicated feelings in the smallest of spaces - doing justice to the weight of our emotions whilst resisting the need to tell all. To connect with those around us while keeping those inner most parts of us safe. I write poetry drawing from my own experiences and those close to me. When I'm not writing, I enjoy travelling, and getting lost in books and music.
Signs of Life
Poems for Remembering
A debut book of poetry to feed the soul
My first book of poetry, Signs of Life, explores the feelings and experiences that make us alive: trauma, grief, loss, love, learning and hope. It offers moments to reflect on both the pain and joy that fill our lives, and what we can learn from them.
