It's the 10th Anniversary of my debut poetry collection
Caged Without Walls
The title is an analysis of what it means to live with depression and anxiety.
Some of the content is about my own struggles but many of the others are based on many other experiences and observations. My poetry is accessible. They're like little stories.
It's not as depressing as it sounds and it's dirt cheap on my website now. $12.95 (selling it as a loss).

It was my second book, after Bottomless River, also published through Ginninderra Press. I had a book launch. It was all exciting at the time and I thought for sure it would lead to having my novels picked up by a major publisher. Sadly, it did not happen. It's more about actual connections. Emails get you nowhere. Still, the book exists and for that I'm grateful.

After this, there was a pause for four years before the next book, Pseudo Stars, a story collection.
I am proud of Caged Without Walls. You can pick it up for a bargain ($12.95 au) at A.J. Langford Books.
