My new book, The Wilding Eye, New and Selected Poems, will be published by Worple Press in 2015. Thrilled by Worple Press with its beautifully designed books and terrific authors, having Peter and Amanda Carpenter to work with, and Michael McKimm, already very kind, welcoming and helpful. Some days the sun really does shine!!

Letter is second one down, slightly pruned so not as literate as it was.
