Alternate Endings is a genuinely warm collection of poems that gently encourages readers to be retrospective in their journey across the pages and beyond. This book is a true friend – firm when it needs to be, but always kind.

Bridget Hart

I hope somehow it’s useful.
That it causes creases in your face.
Whether they fall in brow or cheeks,
I hope the movement
is a reminder
that you are still malleable.
Perhaps at some time
you’ll find a line in your mind
like a £10 note in the pocket of an old coat
and maybe it’ll buy you a little clarity.


Alternate Endings is a collection of poems made of worry and hope. With wit and warmth, Erin looks for the beginnings in endings as she confides her stories of living, loving, feeling and fretting.

These are poems with big hearts and wry smiles. They are hugs for the days when it’s all a bit much and energy for the days that you can change the world.

“Utterly brilliant: poetry that fizzes in your tummy and stirs your heart. I loved every page.” – Leena Norms
