Praise for Notes Towards Recovery

“… a remarkable debut.”

Kerry Clare, Pickle Me This

"The stories start quietly, each word a small stitch around the edge of your heart, but then somewhere toward the end of the story, it all pulls tight and you just have to sit there for a minute, sit with how the accumulation of words on a page can create such immense feelings."

Cynthia Newberry Martin, author, Catching Days and Tidal Flats


“…moving, intricate, emotionally powerful…”

Adam C Piette, professor, University of Sheffield
