Her poem “Embarrassed” was tweeted to fans by renowned singer Pink. Her album Versus was released in October 2014, recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London. Her second collection of poems ‘Cherry Pie’, was released by Burning Eye Books in 2015 and a new book on parenthood ‘Nobody Told Me’ made her the first poet to be published by Blackfriars, London.
