Kitty Donnelly’s new book of poetry, In Dangerous Hours,
is published on Monday, 6th June 2022. Kitty sent a copy of her latest
collection to the Daphne du Maurier website so that we could see for ourselves
what a beautiful collection it is and that it is particularly special because
it includes poems inspired by Daphne du Maurier’s most famous novel Rebecca.
Kitty tells us that a number of the poems in In Dangerous
Hours have been drawn from inspirational women, fictional characters and
novels. These include Emily Bronte, Vivienne
Eliot, the first wife of T.S. Eliot, Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of F. Scott
Fitzgerald, Jean Rhys, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, Fifth Helena Drive
– the last address of Marylin Monroe, the painting Weeping Woman Seated by
Van Gough and others.

Limited Time, was a joint winner
of the Indigo Dreams Collection Competition. In 2019 she won a Creative Future Award and
was nominated for the Jerwood Compton Fellowship. She has a MA in Creative Writing from
Manchester Metropolitan University. Meanwhile,
she has worked in mental health services throughout most of her adult
life. Kitty’s Irish roots, her
experiences through her work and her understanding of women shine through her
poetry with honesty and beauty. We
recommend this book to all lovers of poetry and literature, particularly if you
would like to read what she has written about Rebecca.
