All About Me

Hello and thank you very much for stopping by.  I'm a mother, writer/poet and live in Scotland with my five wonderful children.  By day I'm a law tutor and academic researcher in criminal law/justice just about to embark on a Ph.D.  At night I like nothing more than to curl up with a good book, a cup of tea and some chocolate.

I've always written creatively for the catharsis and only started tinkering with poetry in the pandemic.  My inspiration comes from poets such as Mary Oliver, Carol Ann Duffy, Emily Dickinson, Sappho, Anne Stevenson, Sylvia Plath, Dorothy Molloy, Derek Mahon, Dylan Thomas - the list is endless.  

I'm a big fan of Greek Mythology and feminist reimaginings, old Hollywood Actresses/films, the theatre, ballet and music. 

I really hope you enjoy some of my most recent work and do get in touch via twitter if you are a writer/poet or just love to read @earlgrey79_lisa.
