Margaret L Grace has been widely published ― free verse poetry, Tanka and Haiku ― in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, USA, UK and Hong Kong, including several anthologies. She has won many awards for her poetry.
Her first book, ‘From The Depths’ (published 2011, Ginninderra Press, Adelaide), is a journey written in Tanka Sequence (Japanese Form) based around her travels, her childhood in New Zealand and her love of ocean sailing.
Inspiration: I lived on the edge of an ocean beach in NSW for forty years and viewed its complex world, through salt encrusted windows ― inclusive of storms, flotsam, full moons, lurid sunrises, whales, dolphins and wrecks on the reef. This has been the source of inspiration in much of my writing, reflecting the awe and respect I have for the sea. ML Grace
