Airplane Baby Banana Blanket is here!

After years of writing and dreaming, my second book Airplane Baby Banana Blanket is finally here. Unlike my first collection, this book focuses on a single subject. It tells the true story of a remarkable chimpanzee named Lucy whose strange journey was originally outlined in Dr Maurice Temerlin's long-out-of-print memoir Lucy: Growing Up Human.


I can't wait for people to read my poems inspired by Temerlin's book and a range of other sources regarding Lucy's life.


Thanks to Recent Work Press for publishing Airplane Baby Banana Blanket.
