Close to My Heart

It’s been a while, but what better way to come back from a few months off-line than to share something very close to my heart…

As a vegan family we are passionate about spreading the message of kindness to all animals but sometimes it’s hard to know how best to do this. After some thought I realised that my voice is through my writing and so, I decided to write a short collection of poems that reflect my own journey from meat eater, to vegetarian, to vegan.

Each of the five poems reflect the questions I have pondered myself on my own journey and I hope they will resonate with anyone pondering their own eating habits with regards to animals. With a cover illustration by my daughter, you can download the collection right here for just £1.00, with all proceeds currently going to the wonderful Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Norfolk. I can also send out an audio recording of me reading the poems for free/sharing, just email me!

You can listen to me reading one of my poems ‘It Started with an Ant’ on the VIVA! August 2017 podcast right here. I was thrilled to be featured and you will hear me 16 minutes in, but of course I’d rather you listen to the whole show 😉

VIVA! or Vegetarians’ International Voice for Animals, is a British animal rights group, which focuses on promoting veganism. They do amazing and very important work that highlights the truth behind what really goes on in the animal farming industry.

“The most powerful action you can take to end animal suffering, protect the environment and improve your health is to go vegan. Support us and help Viva! campaign for a better world.”  ~ Juliet Gellatley, VIVA! Founder.
