Remember the thoroughbred girls? The girls we watched in washroom mirrors and fell in love with. With kohl eyes,  powder puffs, chapstick lips & candy-floss pink cheeks. The girls who shot the pistol at the starting line and still finished first. Who took drugs and hearts like jumps, curled their knees beneath them. The girls … Continue reading Thoroughbreds

My international giveaway for Flowers on the Wall ends today at 11pm BST! Giveaway post - comment to enter


Reading Kristiana’s words places me somewhere between a melancholic stroll through the woods with light droplets of rain hitting my face, and a car drive late at night down a long stretch of road that feels familiar yet untravelled. In both instances, the world stops spinning, and time as I know it loses its meaning. … Continue reading Flowers on the Wall – advance review from S. K. Nicholas

Kristiana's second poetry volume opens with a quiet assertion of power, self-acceptance and self-compassion. The poet declares herself to be 'foolhardy and faerie, clumsy and pretty, angry at the world and everyone in it, loved and unloved but always in love.' ['I will'] A more fitting opening would be difficult to find. Reed's collection explores … Continue reading Flowers on the Wall – advance review from Lois E. Linkins
