Two of my stories are published in this anthology, The Milk of Female Kindness: an Anthology of Honest Motherhood, now available on Amazon. In Tin Can, a daughter visits her elderly mother who, wracked by dementia, does not recognise the stranger who takes her hand. The Biscuit Tin, an excerpt from my second novel Connectedness, sees Lorna on her deathbed struggling to stay alive long enough to give her daughter one last piece of advice: do not lose sight of who you are and where you came from. Short stories, poetry and photography on the theme of motherhood, being a mother, and our relationships with our mothers.
