Another Route for the Reader to Unravel

This is Anna Higgie.

Anna illustrated my last two books and is currently working on the up n coming ‘Singing My Mother’s Song,’ published by Burning Eye Books, June of this year. 🤸🏽‍♀️

We spent half the morning looking through each poem and story, discussing what would be the best fusion of words and imagery, how each drawing could add a whole new layer and meaning to the language, another route for the reader to unravel and enter the narrative from.

The other half was spent making her take moody selfies with me
