Welcome to my website, a place for me to share my poems with anyone who fancies turning up or stumbles in accidentally needing shelter. The rather cool photo above was taken by my husband Alex on a recent trip to Marseilles. I picked it because it echoes the theme of my first collection, To Know Bedrock, which was published by Pindrop Press in 2011. Plus I find it very clever he managed not to get his new camera wet in the process.

My debut collection of poetry To Know Bedrock is available to buy direct from my publisher (credit card payments fine) at Just click on my name in the menu 'Pindrop Poets', scroll to the bottom of the page and click to order. If for some reason you are unable to order a copy, let me know and I'll sort you out.

My second collection The Art Of Egg is due to be published by Two Ravens Press in early 2015.
