The Things We Thought Were Beautiful

I’m excited to announce that my second book of poems, The Things We Thought Were Beautiful, is out now!

The Things We Thought Were Beautiful considers our changing feelings and connection to the world around us, the beauty and strangeness of travel, and the places we look for meaning. There are poems that explore the challenges of living without love, as well as the redemption of home and family.

Here’s a taster:

The Things We Thought Were Beautiful - All poem

The Things We Thought Were Beautiful was a top ten bestseller in Amazon’s Inspirational poetry. Here’s what readers are saying about it:

A beautifully written anthology of delightful poems about life, love family & nature…such familiar things put into words in a very wonderful way. My copy is already very well thumbed & I’m sure I will be delving into it long into the future” 5 stars, Amazon UK

“The poem Sorted brought tears as did Before the Divorce. Poems like The Oak in the Snow and Dandelion… use sensitive observations of nature to bring us a shiver of transcendence. Love Wish is one of the most beautiful love poems I have ever read and the poem Unknown is an astounding tribute to fatherhood. These are important poems. I am delighted to have this book in my collection and will return to it many times.” 5 stars, Amazon.com

“My favourite poems are short but with an emotional punch, or which create a vivid picture – “The Quarry”, “All”, “Sorted”, and “The Little Entertainers” 5 stars, Amazon UK
