this should have been on a link.
Look Inside gives you the title poem set in Stirling Castle, you have to send for the book to get the rest

Story
Introduction
University subjects were classics and philosophy. A former qualified and experienced librarian, I gave this up to have children and move to Scotland. Two children. Founded Old Grindles Bookshop, Edinburgh in 1987, with husband Ian W King. Moved the bookshop to Callander, continuously trading, to become Kings Bookshop Callander in 2000.
Based on the bookshop, as diehard publishers we have produced a small but steady output of poetry and drama since 1991, including the well known broadsheet Poetry Scotland. Kings Bookshop Callander also hosts Poetry Scotland's annual Callander Poetry Weekend each September.
My books of poems include Millennial (diehard), Looking for Scotland (University of Salzburg Press), Bewick Walks to Scotland (Arrowhead), The Bees (long poem illustrated by Reinhard Behrens, diehard), The Great North Road (diehard) and The Honey Seller (Firewater Press). Many more of my poems may be found in magazines, anthologies etc on paper and on the web.
I have also read and performed poems in many cities and venues including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Newcastle (Morden Tower), StAnza, Ledbury Poetry Festival, London and North Wales.
I enjoy driving, particularly in the Scottish highlands. My interests in gardening include winter flowers, beekeeping, ponds and bonsai.
