Katharine Towers was born in London in 1961 and read Modern Languages at St. Hilda's College, Oxford. She has an MA in Writing from Newcastle University. Her pamphlet 'Slow Time' was published by Mews Press in 2005 and her poems have appeared in publications including Mslexia and The North. She lives in the Peak District with her husband and two daughters.
The poems were written over a period of about five years. I listened to lots of music and we moved to a house in the middle of nowhere. I think you can tell that from reading the poems. But that's enough about me.
