Irma Upex-Huggins is a retired Mental Health Social Worker and Group Analytic Psychotherapist, living in Croydon with her husband and dog, Kiki.
She describes herself as a 'words sculptor' and an 'inquisitive observer of people, looking in from outside'.
Irma enjoys travelling, especially the intimacy of small places - island communities and small towns; always visiting markets on her travels and learning about people,
their lives, languages and customs.
Author of two other poetry books: "Aloes and Brown Sugar" 1991 and "Charcoal Woman" 1993, Irma is a member of Poets Anonymous and also plays guitar.
Her new poetry collection, Red Winds - a VSO in Tanzania is being published by Palewell
Press in 2018.
