Zoe has always enjoyed writing as hobby and undertook a creating writing course last year where she gained a Distinction. Life shows how generations view the simple yet complex idea of life. The synopsis from the publisher describes the two components of the book:
Poetry: Superstition and fear, love and family, shipwreck and despair, questions and loyalty. Life shows new ways to look at complex minefield of these themes. Scattered between short stories, the poetry reflects on the inner struggles of everyday life.
Short stories: Showing a wide breadth of human emotions from our love of the occult to how love is so deep that it spans even the gap of death. How does our past life experiences shape our future selves—find out in ‘A letter from the past to the future’. Want to or need to laugh—read about Jay’s escapades in ‘DIY mishap’.
