Cactus: Poetry Collection

mazcover resized

New and old followers: Cactus is my debut poetry collection and contains three sections of poems about places. It has several poems you will never see here, so if you like my work and want to support me, then buying it is a great way to do that!

You can find it in these places:

Amazon UK, USA (available on others if you search)
Bigcartel (directly from me, with a note)
and the Goodreads page (courtesy of Becca at Libfem) is right here

I am also happy for you to direct any questions to my email at, and would love to do interviews if you run a poetry/literature/writing blog.

Thank you for all your support, especially to everyone who has already bought my little book! If you can’t afford it right now let me know, and I’d love for you to spread the good word.

So where did it begin?
In those first lonely weekends
killing time, rather than play
friendless and disjointed

There is nothing so endlessly devastating
as the passing of time, as the knowledge
I can never be everyone, nor do everything
I had always planned, always wanted

Ten years – ten years in which I’ve become
half a person, almost smart enough
almost grown, enough to be left alone
but I don’t know how they got away from me

It’s the only reason you are here:
you know no-one will ever love you
and through my screams, it’s still clear
you won’t forget the hundred seasons
the decades I stayed right here

OUT TODAY: The Logic Bible 

My beautiful friend Becca has written an insightful account on her experience with atheism. It’s informative, funny, and above all only 99p on Amazon – for now. If you’re a believer it might not convince you otherwise, but in any case it’s a wonderful read by one of the most talented writers I am lucky to know.


HAMSA LOGIC BIBLE 1Today I am celebrating the release of my second e-BookThe Logic Bible: An Atheist’s Map to Heavenon Amazon Kindle for only99p(this week only, normally £2.99) 

This short eBook is a rant and commentary on modern organised religion from the perspective of our atheist generation. It is also a guide to living a healthier and happier life without religion, with accepting the misery and grief that comes naturally and being better through goal oriented living, meditation, mindfulness, CBT & self enlightenment.
I worked really hard on it over the last two months and I hope you appreciate how raw and honest I am throughout the piece.

These violent delights have violent ends
and you’ve yet to quell that rage, dear
lost yourself ten years, beloved friends
as if you ever loved a soul
more than you loved to be left alone
