Hi and welcome!
One night, in the disguise of darkness, a mother & daughter flee the threat of the man who should love them; swapping home for safety & new beginnings. Part poetry, part illustrated notes with scribbles pages to write down your own thoughts along the way.
Reading age: 13+

I weave words with pictures and love poetry because it holds a lot in a small space of words. When I don't have time or the band-with to read much a poem is my quick fix. I write poetry like other people write diaries.
My poetry book, 'after-words' launched at the iconic Notting Hill Bookshop (yes the one from that film) where it is a bestseller.
“you are born you
And the world enters.
A little less you,
A little more them.
You are old enough to know
You were enough before.”
