My First Book
Why Rainbows May Cry Now On Amazon Unlimited. Most of you know I published my first book of poetry back in 2016. Why Rainbows May Cry was a hugely cathartic experience for me from the start to the end. I never intended to publish this as a book; the poetry was a way for me to express the emotions that I was experiencing and feeling at the time.
The poems are about love and loss and the nightmare that is the world of online dating. I seemed to go from one disaster to another and the best way for me to deal with it was through poetry.

This is a book for anyone who has lived through the experience of loss, love and infatuation – or desire, whether satisfied or no.t A stunning collection of poems. The reader, however, needs to be able to cope with powerful emotions and strong language. This beautifully produced book brings us into the world of dating sites and is based on the author’s experiences in 2016.
Further – and perhaps most significant of all – these poems will resonate with anyone who has been betrayed, deserted or let down, not just by a lover, but also by parents, grown-up children, family or friends. The back of the book accurately describes this collection as “a complete roller-coaster of emotions” – it can also feel like riding in a speeding truck in which the brakes and steering have failed.
The language and style are pared-down and simple – here, the emotion IS the poem. And that strange modern world-within-a-world of dating sites is all here: elation, betrayal, bewilderment, rage, bitterness, self-questioning, the waiting (with your stomach in a knot), the wild hope of “maybe this time…”. This is the journey of a courageous woman wanting to love and be loved – in good faith.
Very few men have the courage to make themselves so vulnerable; fewer still are brave enough to write about their vulnerability. The author calls her book a “means of healing”; many readers will find it is exactly that. For myself, I hope that she soon – very soon – publishes more poems on her personal experiences.
