Available from online bookstores, this 140 page book contains almost all of the poems written since the publication of "In the House of Ladders".  It has three major sequences including Mare Nostrum, a nine part poem sequence that uses the Mediterranean as a metaphor for the collective unconscious. There are stand-alone poems that cover subjects close to the poet's heart such as the spirit of place, childhood, love, death, travel, spirituality, nature and shamanism with a dash of humour and magic.

The collection is edited by Emma Dewhurst, published by Greenheart Press with an introduction by Award-winning playwright Sarah Hehir.  There are also black and white prints by Bill Lewis as headings for each section of the book.  Click here to read the review in Litter Magazine
