Reekie!), recently named ‘Artist of the Year 2021’s supported by the National Theatre of Scotland (Scottish Emerging Theatre Awards).Her latest collection, Love The Sinner, is a modern retelling of the seven deadly sins, with the bold and searing poems celebrating human frailty, love and resilience within a world obsessed with self-betterment.

The collection has been called ‘the work of a lyrical genius’ (Benjamin Zephaniah), ‘a perfect creation’ (Kirstin Innes) and ‘rich and otherworldly’ (Salena Godden).
