TRISH HEYES is a writer of fiction, poetry and personal essays.
The flavour of her writing is steeped in the deep appreciation she has for the fleeting nature of life, and the singular opportunity we all have to savor the richness within every moment.
When asked to describe her story-telling style a friend explained, “If Leonard Cohen and Charles Bukowski had a feminine love-child, that would be Trish’s writing”.
Her education includes a Bachelor’s degree in English and Religion and Culture, a Class 1 Funeral Director’s License and post graduate diploma in crisis and trauma intervention and counseling. She has spent her career witnessing and sharing stories at the end of life. This has deeply impacted her writing and her appreciation for the richness of life.
Previously her poems have been published in Quills and Ascent Aspirations magazines. Her essays have been published online with ThoughCatalog. Currently she has two draft novels set for final editing, and is preparing poetry for publication.
