Meniscus: South from Sintha – a new long poem, the continuing adventures of Odymn and the Slain on the planet Meniscus. Illustrated with my drawings!

On a planet where Humans are slaves, Odymn is free. Her companion, the Slain, was once a trader in sentient beings. Now, for love of Odymn, he has agreed to change his ways and to return his former captives to their homes. Together, he and Odymn travel the urban alleyways and wilderness woodlands of the Southern District of Prell-nan, risking everything. They must battle wild life, outsmart power-hungry Dock-winders and dodge the grasp of ruthless Gel-heads. But in spite of good intentions, will the Slain be able to right the wrongs of the past? Or will the consequences of his actions outweigh the good he and Odymn want to do?

Meniscus: Crossing The Churn – my long poem, the story of the meeting of Odymn and the Slain.

Odymn is a young woman who wants to be free of a life of servitude. By day she serves meals to the brutal Gel-heads in a Prell-nan bar. By night, she practices the skill of parkour, gaining strength and endurance and a way to survive. When the Slain, a genetically-enhanced trader rescues her from attack by a gang of Gel-heads, Odymn thinks she may have found her soul-mate and a new way of life. But can she trust the kindness of a stranger?

My book is about eating local foods, especially wild edible plants. There are poems about picking berries, foraging for wild herbs, gathering coastal plants, and making jams and jellies.  I hope my poems will remind you of your own days in the berry field! I have included my own pencil drawings of many wild plants.
