These poems are quiet, controlled and sparse, with an accurate

ear for rhythm. Body, Remember is a satisfyingly cohesive collection,

each poem adding something to the previous and the next.

I found them intense, strong and immensely powerful.’

– Diane Brown (Landfall Review Online,

Otago University Press)

Shooting Gallery is stunning. The poems are assured, brave,

and many have already been published in a wide array of NZ

and international journals... The body is prime. And although throughout

the collection pain and indignity are often a given, there is also

a glorying in the physical, the sensual; there is verve,

and poems that punch the air celebrating survival.’ 

– Carolyn McCurdie (Takahē Magazine)

‘Of the five stories in Cowboy Genes, three struck me:

Diseases from Space, The Gardenia Girls, and especially Crash Test Dummies.

If you are weary of cheap cynicism being passed off as profundity,

you’ll feel great empathy for Victor, the central character of this story,

who yearns for things that are life-changing, life-affirming.’

– Jim Greenhalf (Telegraph & Argus)

‘Confluence’ appears in ‘Journeys through Fire’. An anthology of the winning and shortlisted poems from the Lancelot Andrewes Awards 2012, judged by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.

‘Sunflowers’, a powerful poem, capturing the true horror of the protests in the Long Kesh incarcerations. A merciless, no-holds-barred poem with a final image almost out of a Francis Bacon painting.’ – Christopher North

‘Sunflowers’ appears in ‘Bestiario’ edited by Gabriel Griffin. ‘Bestiario’ is an anthology of winning and selected poems from the Poetry on the Lake XII International Poetry Competition 2012. Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and Gillian Clarke will launch ‘Bestiario’ at the Poetry on the Lake festival (September 27 – 30) on Isola San Giulio, the antique island on Lake Orta, northern Italy. ‘Bestiario’ can be purchased at ilmiobro.it
