A guest at Robbie’s #PoetryReadathon…

Yesterday, Robbie very kindly included me in her December  Poetry Readathon. As usual, the Small Dog hogged the limelight with two lovely reviews of ‘her’ books…. Head over to Robbie’s Inspiration to read the interview…

Sue Vincent

Sue Vincent is an amazing blogger who does a huge amount to promote and support her fellow bloggers, authors and poets. She runs a weekly photo prompt challenge which is hugely well supported and provides some lovely insights into how different people think and write in response to the same prompt.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am a Yorkshire lass with two grown sons and two granddaughters. I live with the notorious Small Dog, in a village in rural Buckinghamshire, England. I write daily for my own blog, the Daily Echo, which is an eclectic mix of personal reflections, poetry, history and folklore. I help run the Silent Eye, an international organisation that helps people realise their potential through awareness, and write for our website too. As a writer, I have several books published, including one written with G. Michael Vasey, but most of the time I write in partnership with Stuart France, exploring ancient sites, myths and symbolism in a semi-fictional way.

When ever I think of Yorkshire it reminds me of the book, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Sue and Stuart’s separate and combined blog posts also remind me of this book with their amazing and wonder inducing sights and ideas. 

Who is your favourite poet?

That has to be an unfair question! It all depends on the moment and the mood. If I had to choose, I would say Omar Khayyam, whose poetry I have carried in my handbag and re-read for many years.

On the other hand, and completely at the other end of the literary scale, there is Marriot Edgar, whose rhyming monologues, written and recited in the vernacular, were so much a part of my childhood that even now, when I write humorous verse, it is to his rhythm.
