Bone Cathedral is Keri Moriarty's first poetry collection, which explores a series life based snapshots with some using truth as a backbone and others taking a distinctly surreal turn. The pieces included are a mixture of tributes, introspections and reflections commenting on a wide range of subjects from contemplative smoking to grief, from love to identity.

About the Author

Keri Moriarty first pursued Creative Writing as a hobby and later, in academia, achieving a BA in English Studies where her dissertation was used as an example of American writing and a 2:1 on a Masters degree in the subject. Keri has had her 10-minute comedy 'Culture' performed by a group funded by The National Theatre of Wales and had a short stint as a comedian, performing her first gig at the Dylan Thomas Fringe Festival.

Once her degree was over, she embarked on the launching of Bunbury Magazine, an arts and literature online publication and is now, with her husband, a co-director of the company. Bunbury has been shortlisted in the Sabateur Awards nominations for two years running (2016/2017) and also has an anthology under its belt with Wordcatcher Publishing. In the past, Keri has also interviewed such talented individuals as Micheal R. Perry, writer of the hit Hollywood film, The Voices, starring Ryan Reynolds, as well as comedians such as Phil Jupitus and Christian Reilly.

In Bury, Greater Manchester, she organises a spoken word and performance evening called 'Just Write Speaks' and, co-hosting with her husband, introduces both seasoned and new performers to the stage. The night has drawn some of the best talent such as Christopher Bowles, Geneviève L. Walsh, David Subacchi, and Kieren King.

As a Performance poet, she has spoken at numerous spoken word evenings across Wales and the North West of England.

Keri is 5ft of pure fury, a tea drinker, word lover, and sarcasm enthusiast.
