About Me

  • After lockdown I was a poet. 
  • My world needed holding steady: I listened. I wrote. 
  • I wrote about things that lurked in my unconscious, people, the trees, what the trees told me and the hills (they told me things too).
  • I wrote a book (rúnian – that means whisper in Old English); I recorded an album, a spoken word and music version of that book – Words of a Fiddler’s Daughter was born (me and The Ciderhouse Rebellion).
  • I was published in another book (called Viral Verses).
  • I wrote another book because I couldn’t help it. 
  • It isn’t out yet. 
  • I kept writing. 
  • I can’t help it. 
  • Words of a Fiddler’s Daughter has another project, it is Arts Council funded: Ironstone Tales. 
  • Either my head or the world won’t quieten down, I don’t mind. 
  • I am a poet.
