My 4th collection titled “Between Aurora and Twilight” was published in May alas Covid19 is preventing me from promoting and reading from this collection. I do not like zoom or video, I like a gathering of people. “Between Aurora and Twilight” is not poetry but prose. Walks from childhood, walking through the seasons, my lone walks through France into Spain, Hadrian’s wall and other walks. I write on what I see and hear, my past and other thoughts.
Review from Author of “No Dogs, No Blacks, No Irish” Ruby Lord

A lovely book interspersed with difficult lessons in her life. Reading, writing and walking takes us to the places no one else can reach. I had a great trip.

has helped her to heal. Her honesty is admirable, it is not easy to share bad things but
when you do, as she does, the burden lightens and allows the person to become less
vulnerable. In writing this the author is encouraging others to also use the natural world to
