I spent more than a decade in Stoke on Trent, I went there to go to university and just stayed. The people are very warm and it is a hospitable place with a real vitality. I enjoyed my stay there very much. This collection of poems were all written whilst I was there. This book is dedicated to all those wonderful people I knew there, to all my close friends, but very specially to Dulcie and Graham.
I have been writing in my head all my life; I have always been called a daydreamer.
In the last few years I have taken to writing some of it down.
This collection has an obvious feminist slant, not surprising, as I am a feminist.
But more importantly some of the topics covered in this work are controversial and I make no apology for that.
