[T]hese poems recall the rich confessional poetry of Pascale Petite or the surreal psychodramas of Selima Hill, and herald a bold, truthful new voice.’ (Magma)

Here is a poet whose language is like a multi-coloured kite: she knows how to let it fly and swoop, but she never lets go of the strings.’ (Poetry Express)
