Both of my books were re-published in 2021 under my own imprint, Quiet Rebel Press. They are now available in hardcover, paperback, and eBooks, on multiple online platforms, in libraries, to order in brick-and-mortar bookstores, as well as online retailers.
My debut collection of poems, ‘stripped‘, was published in November 2019.
At its heart, this collection of poems is about learning to become everything that you are, by leaving behind every lie ever spoken to, and over you. Through my words I attempt to find the place where I am finally comfortable in my own skin—fully at peace with all that I am, as well as all that I am not.

My second collection of poems, ‘a counting of love‘, was published in July 2020.
This is a book about love in all her facets, wearing all her faces and in all her seasons.
Love has a way of finding you in the long grass, when you are not looking for it—not searching for anything other than yourself. That’s when love walks in on soft feet, taps you on the shoulder, sits down with you and whispers your name. Isn’t this a beautiful mystery? How love is an anchor, a compass, a map and a home.
From the preface to ‘a counting of love‘.
In this collection of poems and prose poems, I explore motherhood, autism, changing relationships, grief and loss, self-esteem, my relationship with my faith and spirituality, and right at the centre of my work, as always, there is a deep search for beauty in the world around me.
