Lynn poet Sue Reeve, 57, has sold 500 copies of her first book within its first year of being published.
Mrs Reeve enjoyed writing poetry as a student at Park High School, now King’s Lynn Academy, but only began writing seriously four years ago. The encouragement came unexpectedly when Mrs. Reeve, unemployed, visited the JobCentre and was asked to pen an inspirational poem for those searching for work.
Continuing with the ideas of encouragement and hope, Mrs Reeve has said: “I began writing here and there on my computer, usually in the early morning, hence the name of the book ‘Waking Words’. The book is full of inspirational poems, about life, love and loss. I would love to write another collection of poems, perhaps with a humorous theme.”
A book signing for ‘Waking Words’ is taking place on September 7 from 10am-2pm at Lynn Museum, and readers can also purchase a copy from Mrs Reeve’s website, www.wakingwords.co.uk .
