National Poetry Day came and went on Thursday (8 October) and as well intentioned as I was, I didn’t have a thing to show for it. Between my day job (I’m working as an English support teacher in a London secondary school) and spending my evenings preparing for my forthcoming court case, sadly there isn’t much brain power left for creative pursuits in this limbo life of mine as of late. In the interim, here’s another promo shot taken amidst happier times…and better weather. For as we enter autumn, I will reflect on the good times as I walk the road not taken into happier times post litigation!
V is for Victory…House!
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.
