“This pamphlet is a work of art in ways that reach out before and beyond its own physical construction, and is a must for anyone serious about modern poetry.”
Joy Kenward (Author of the Archibald Fly series and Into The Sun).

“I found ‘Found Me’ fresh & exciting! Love the visuals of the ‘black out’ process; left facing each poem within this experimental collection of ten, seemingly random, yet magically meaningful poems; have read and re-read on my travels!”
Susan Evans (Performance Poet and Shortlisted Best Spoken Word Performer, Saboteur Awards 2016).

“Never lacking in inspiration, she has found yet another medium through which to demonstrate her considerable talent. Here is a unique poet who does not always have to rely on conventional ways of expressing her artistry, as is amply illustrated in her latest publication ‘FOUND ME’….Despite the random selection of unconnected words on which these poems have depended for their creation, they are still thought provoking, entertaining and eminently readable.”
Lynn Trowbridge (Author of A Life Is What You Get and Random Ramblings of a Nonagenarian)

“One of the most creative looking books I’ve seen”.
Josh Dale – founder Thirty West Publishing House.

“So exciting, brilliant cover, intriguing blackout poetry is a revelation”.
Kathryn Alderman (Poet).

clockmakers dream albumMusic Album – The Clockmaker’s Dream by Rei Legarto

Five poems set to music and a sixth poem, The Clockmaker’s Dream, used on the inside cover art.
“Autumn, windswept and bemused
dresses in golden rags
hiding it’s cache of dying suns
under listless leaf evenings.
In the stagnating lethargy
Frost begins to amass weight
bending me and Water crooked.” ECvW 2011
