Celebration of my Mother

Updated: Jun 23, 2020

My poetry anthology, Fear is a Liar is published on 23rd June 2020.

The date would have been my Mum’s 60th birthday. She died of brain cancer in 2017 and during her illness I wrote a large volume of poetry. You can read a lot of the poems in the second chapter. The book is dedicated to her.

The process of producing the manuscript has been cathartic and emotional. Although I'll admit I did not edit ’Mum’s Chapter’ as I simply could bear to relive those months.

One day I will. Some of the poems are not reflective my semantic potential, but they are authentic and I feel they should remain untouched for this edition.

But can't help laugh at the explicit content warning, just before by heartfelt ode to her!
