Where My Heart Is – published today

My first book of poetry has been published today.  It is available on FeedARead and on Amazon (paperback only – kindle copy to follow).

‘Where My Heart Is’ – comprises a collection of poems written during my time in the magical setting that was Orchards – my childhood home in Rowfant, Sussex where I also raised a family. My time there richly depicted in my book ‘The Haphazard Gardener’.

Memories both good and bad are portrayed in the poetry; which has always been a constant and important part of my life. The poems include observations from my surroundings, and the direction my life has taken. Many were written after I met my husband Philip, when life became calmer and I became more content.

I have included two poems by my granddaughter Erin McCarthy who – at the tender age of seven – has already been described by poet Sue Johnson as very talented.

Although I left this idyllic place in 2005, Orchards it is still where my heart is.

I hope you enjoy this collection
