Her collection Psalmody won the Melita Hume Prize 2015. Her pamphlet Paga was a winner of the Cinnamon Press Pamphlet competition 2014.

Poems in anthologies include The Book of Euclid, 2013 and Reaching Out by Cinnamon Press and The Poet’s Quest for God: 21st Century Poems of Spirituality, Eyewear Publishing.
Faber poet Toby Martinez de las Rivas described her first collection as containing an ‘intelligent intimacy, a deeply constructed symbolism which constantly re-surfaces throughout the book and a powerful, direct, unsettling and, at times, very beautiful and stark lyric.’
