She is a former presenter of the highly successful The Shuffle series of readings at the Poetry Society and in 2011 brought out her first full collection, ‘The Kitchen of Lovely Contraptions‘ (Waterways) in 2011. Her collection from Nine Arches Press, ‘All My Mad Mothers’, was shortlisted for the 2017 T.S.
