Her website is at https://harridanswall.wordpress.com/ and on Twitter she is @PeppyScott, and describes herself as follows. Ex-waitress. Dabbles in poetry, humorous verse, illustration, cartoons, spoken word. Sometimes sings in public, badly. (Sings brilliantly in the car.) Morning Swim in the North Sea We picked a path across the pebbles past the last high water mark and popped the pods of bladder wrack beneath our shingle-toughened feet before, drawn East toward the shore and morning's ritual immersion, we bore the breathless shock of waves that broke to wash our numbing skin, baptised us with a salted sting, called us, committed, deeper in.
