Marie Cadden was born in Devon, reared in Malahide, Co. Dublin and in Cheshire. Since 1977 she has lived in Spiddal, Co. Galway. Her debut poetry collection, ‘Gynaecologist in the Jacuzzi’ which has recently been published by Salmon Press has been described as ‘both sassy and sensuous’. She has worked as a teacher of children with autism, teacher of the deaf, play therapist. This has enabled Marie to deliver her poetry with style, humour bite. These are poems of hope, enchantment, disenchantment and acceptance.

He is the founding editor, along with Jim Burke, of The Stony Thursday Book and has published many collections of poetry in English and his most recent book is The Secret Heart of Things.
