Jane Tims writer

Welcome to the place where all my writing and art come together!

Now available:

Meniscus: Crossing The Churn – my new long poem, following the adventures of Odymn and the Slain on the planet Meniscus. Illustrated with my drawings!

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.
