Here are another couple of poems from my lovely poet hubby, Joseph Robert, published in The Mind[less] Muse. Since January both of us have had poetry published rather than fiction, but not to fear – more fiction is in the pipeline for this year.
After all, a writing couple need to share the love.
Poetry, prose-poetry, flash fiction, short stories, novellas, novels…what cut of the cow do you prefer? Joseph and I write all of the above and for most educated writer or editor types, we have very distinct styles. So here’s a little message to one very small mind out there who (laughably) thought, when reviewing our work, that my poet hubby and I are the same person and that our joint publication was a ‘gimmick’ – what’s your beef?!
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.
