Editorial Reviews

Michael Sharkey
Williams has a lightness of touch, evident in admirable turns of phrase and points of view that grant her characters credibility and dignity. Like her free verse forms, her haibun and villanelle poems are accomplished studies of acts and motives. The poems are rewarding for their deft presentation of the layers that we recognise as life's complexity and wholeness. Williams's fellow-feeling is wise and generous.
Tim Thorne
Hers is an important voice, a voice which chronicles, explores and celebrates the world we live in not only by what it says but more significantly by how it says it. She has a wonderful capacity for catching the precise, telling detail and presenting it in the perfect nuance of tone.
