Elizabeth Miller, author of ‘Penumbra - Poems about Dementia’ and 'Halfpace - Poems About My Childhood' is a writer, mother and teacher. The daughter of a librarian, with both parents as published authors, she has spent much of her life surrounded by books. At age three, she announced that her ambition was to be ‘a poem lady and drive round Ireland in a tractor’. Although she has enjoyed writing ever since, she has yet to climb aboard that Irish tractor!
When Elizabeth's mother was diagnosed with dementia in 2015, Elizabeth began writing poetry as a cathartic activity but soon realised that her poems could help others if shared more widely. Since then she has continued writing poetry on a wide range of topics and enjoyed giving poetry readings, leading discussions and running workshops to help others find their voice.
