I have just finished writing my third collection, Haggards – poems about herbs, wild landscapes, and music as a response to personal grief and social upheaval, including a long poem The Wren in the Ash Tree, about the life history of wrens, collapse and regeneration, creativity, community, language and recognising the history of women – among many other things. It will be published in February 2018.

Articles on Christian mysticism have appeared in The Chapter, Spirituality and The Merton Journal. In 2007 I completed a translation and commentary on the medieval work, The Cloud of Unknowing.
