Two new books in 2022!

Very very lucky writer here—I have not one but 2 books out in 2022: a few months before my debut novel, GO ON, is out from Broken Sleep Books in November, my second poetry collection, 'Still Life with Octopus' will be published by Nine Arches Press in July. Nine Arches says:

An exquisitely-tuned second collection, following from her debut Terms & Conditions, and exploring boundaries of animal and human worlds and the intimate nature of time, existence and joy.

And look what amazing company I'm in, I can't wait to get my hands on their books! #gratituesday
