About the Book

http://www.saltpublishing.com/assets/covers/648/9781844717897.jpgMy first collection, ‘Tomorrow, We Will Live Here‘ was released by Salt Publications in November 2010 after winning the 2009 Crashaw prize. The book is a collection of poems centred around people in uncomfortable situations — often of their own making. Or, as it says on the back of the book:

‘Plain spoken narrators as diverse as the America they inhabit – a pastor’s son, the lonely night nurse and fat boy – are all ill at ease. Through road kill, September 11th and death row characters address their own bitter faults with noir-like melancholy, seeking redemption and absolution. What you will find here is the grist of life – death, love, sex, departure – honed by a poet focused on the gravity, fear and humour of living.’
