About Eve Brackenbury
About me? What do you want to know?
Well, if you’re here looking for answers, I’d say you are a poet or a writer.
Maybe you’re a lover of poetry, or (better yet) a poet’s lover.
You might be a book lover in search of a book seller.
Or, you might even be a song writer looking for lyrics.
I know you don’t really want to know about me.
You want to know more about what you already love.
I’ll do my best.
Eve Brackenbury is a City poet and Suburban Bookseller who lives at the edge of nowhere next to a lazy bend in the river. Eve’s poetry often reflects both rural and urban landscapes. “Her poetry,” one reader pointed out, “is always sexy.” Regardless of content or subject matter, Eve finds the seduction in life. Although much of her work is found in print, she prefers spending time with her audience. She’s a frequent guest and host for poetry readings and public speaking engagements.
