This month Joseph Robert has 3 poems appearing in Black Mirror Magazine. Issue 6 is dedicated to Groundhog Day, but Joseph’s poems are more relevant to another celebration this month – Valentine’s Day. One romantic, one not so romantic and one that’s more about the head than the heart in a ritual favoured by the ancients… at times I feel trepanning might have its uses. When the head is filled with pus that not even a writer can put into a publishable form, perhaps it would be better to drill a nice, neat hole. But since this month is more about cupid than Lethe, let us focus on romance. Aren’t I a lucky one-half-of-a-writer-couple? There’s no shadow forecasting 6 more weeks of winter for this little groundhog!
No more winter for these romantic groundhogs

About Leilanie Stewart
Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry.
In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.
