She is the winner of the 2016 Cheshire Prize for Literature and the 2017 Torbay Poetry Competition, and was Highly Commended in the Costa Short Story Awards (2017).

Menagerie is a collection of poems about animals, divided into three sections: water, earth and air. Some poems examine a creature from close-up, almost allowing the reader to see the world through the animal’s eyes, while the poet is more present in other poems, looking on. The collection invites the reader to reflect on loneliness, love, mortality, and hope.
