Carys Owen is a writer, educator and nature-lover. She lives on Kwakwaka’waka land on Vancouver Island, Canada with her Smart dog. This is her first poetry collection.
What inspired you to write this book?
Most of these poems were written as daily musings and observations of the world. Later I would revisit them and rewrite, tweak or leave them as they began. When I started to look at my work as a whole I saw some themes emerge. Eventually I decided to put this collection together.
What do you hope readers will get from reading your book?
I hope my readers will have their own personal responses to these poems and find some pleasure and comfort in the life-affirming nature of my words.
Why should someone buy your book?
This is a great book to sit and read cover to cover on a rainy day or to have by your bed and read a poem each morning. It is a little piece of creativity to carry around with you and dip into when you feel like a change of pace.
