What Readers Have Said
"This is the kind of poetry which itself can become a kind companion to you, a kind companion which finds its way to you at just the right time. Read it if you’re in the middle of an epiphany; read it if you want one; or whether you thought your days of bright-eyed wonder were behind you. Many of these witty, brave and moving stanzas seem to be accompanied with invisible ink, whispering, 'Go on, I dare you.' "
Benedict Atkins, Poet, Traveller, Vicar of Saint Matthias Canning Town.
"Touching and accessible poetry that is full of warmth while at the same time being occasionally haunting.
"There’s a sense of reassurance in Christa’s poetry – similar to the feeling one gets when scenting home-cooked bread.
"It is poetry of real depth while still managing to be enjoyable and relatable. It deserves a wide audience."
Paul Smith, tea drinker, lover of old country houses, Media and Communications Officer, Cherwell District Council and Oxfordshire County Council.

“Thoughtful, compelling and rich. Epiphanies is clearly the work of a gifted writer who gives careful attention to our world and feeds it back in a rich collection of poems that made me think about my world in a fresh way. It's a gift and pure delight to have a writer like this that gives a great collection of funny, thoughtful, loud, quiet, peaceful and most importantly thoughtful poems like this.”

“This book is ...
a life dissection,
a life lesson,
a life celebration,
a life confession,
a life inspiration.
“I love it so much!
“As you plunge into this collection of poems from time to time, be assured, you’ll draw out a different treasure every time…
the sour, the bitter, the sweet, the savoury.
“You will be deeply touched and surprised, provoked and inspired, stirred and comforted.
“What a thrill to read the world through the eyes of Christa's poetry.”

“This is powerful poetry that examines life's big questions but never at the expense of the smaller things that really matter.
“For every grand gesture towards faith, time, truth, beginnings or endings, there's an everyday image of candyfloss kisses, jet skis, roses plucked from Botanical Gardens, weak lemonade, office gossip or the smell of tomatoes on a baby's dress.
“This volume is packed full of these 'everyday treasures', the fleeting moments from ordinary life that change the way we see the world.”
Luke Korzun Martin, Filmmaker and Composer
