Small Acts of Purpose
In this third collection, Anne addresses the everyday, the exotic and even the taboo challenging the reader to reflect on the elemental issues of modern existence. Here are poems of dying and living fully and bravely, poems of ‘witness and empathy’, poems of joy in the world in which Anne lives.
In Between the Dancing
This first collection, the most autobiographical of Anne’s three books, features poems of family and her farming childhood. Poems giving voice to formerly unheard historical voices and others stemming from her work as a funeral director sit alongside humorous and anecdotal poems. In Between the Dancing was the winner of the 2008 IP Picks First Book Award.
