My book

THIS FAR BACK front draft 1-2  IMG_0213 2

This Far Back Everything Shimmers was published by Vagabond Voices in May 2016. It was shortlisted for the Saltire Society Poetry Book of the Year 2016. The judges’ report said:

This impressive first collection draws in everything and everywhere and finds the title’s shimmer wherever it settles. She writes politically without anger, personally without compassion; she encounters the infinite with wit and the bizarreries of everyday with humour. She concludes with a ‘theory of everything’ that is almost believable.

You can read poems from the book in Glasgow Review of Books, or listen to a Scottish Poetry Library Podcast interview with myself here which includes the science and inspiration behind my poetry and readings of a few poems.

You can buy the book from The Scottish Poetry Library shop, Waterstones, Wordery, Vagabond Voices or order it from your local independent bookshop.
