I’m really excited to be reading with two other wonderful poets, Kerry Darbishire @KerryDarbishire and Kelly Davis https://www.kellydavis.co.uk/ in Kendal on September 15th. We all had books published last year but due to Covid haven’t had an in person launch and as there’s nothing like the buzz of reading live to an audience, we decided to hold one together. Kerry and Kelly’s book Glory Days is a collaboration exploring the different phases of a woman’s life and the expectations if you’re growing up as a female and there’s also a moving sequence of poems about he relationships between mothers and daughters. My book Auscultation contains poems about my life as a veterinary surgeon, mother and stepmother. Do come and see us on September 15th at Outside In Beezon Rd, Kendal, LA9 6EL from 7-9pm. There are also open mic slots available, just sign up on the door, admission is free. Oh, and there’s also tea and cake, what’s not to like!
