Every man's work, whether it be literature or music or pictures or architecture or
anything else, is always a portrait of himself. (Samuel Butler)
Warm Shadows is the latest collection published by Lemon Tree Writers
and is a mixture of poetry and prose by both newer and more established members
of the group.
The writers you will meet within the covers of Warm Shadows invite you to
take a journey; one that is humorous, dramatic, biographical and historical —
but always personal.
Richie Brown joined Lemon Tree Writers in 2011. His writing combines the
madcap and the macabre, examples of both of which are regularly published on his
Whiffy Tidings blog. He performs his poetry and stories regularly around
Aberdeen and would like to be mentioned one day in the same breath as Ivor Cutler.
Marie Joaquim was born in London of Irish parents, and is a Jack, or Jill
rather, of all trades. She loves stories: writing stories, reading stories, hearing
stories and watching stories. She also loves travelling and is currently working
on a novel and an ever increasing bucket list.
A collection of Marie's stories called Roads Taken is available online from
the Amazon Kindle Store.
Helen Elizabeth Ramsey has been attending Lemon Tree Writers for the last
ten years. She has contributed to Spinners and Spoons, The tide breathes out
and Journeys. She recently published her first children's book, I Love You
When. She enjoys public readings and events, and aside from writing, her
main hobbies are sewing, crafts, painting and being an auntie.
Marine biologist Martin Walsh's lifelong fascination for all things foreign
— places, people, voices — permeates his writing. Beware. His voracious
ear for dialect and predatory eye for character means you might appear in one of
his stories! Previously published in Pushing Out the Boat, Southlight,
Lemon Tree Writers chapbooks and anthologies, and reading on BBC Radio 4.
