I’m celebrating this weekend at the news from publisher Virgil Kay that my second poetry collection, Chemotherapy for the Soul, is forthcoming from Canada based Fowlpox Press.

This collection contains 35 poems dealing with reflection, depression and letting go of the past. It deals with counselling skills and self-therapy in overcoming difficult emotional obstacles. Despite my celebratory picture above, it’s a serious collection with darker themes, in contrast to my lighter, more humorous debut collection: A Model Archaeologist from Eyewear Publishing (2015).

Hope you can share my excitement with my latest literary news.
