'Cuts' is Maria Haskins' first collection of poetry written in English. Also included in this book are her three previously published and very well-received collections of poetry: 'Blue' ('Blå'), 'Honey' ('Honung'), and 'The Third' ('Den tredje'). All have been translated from the original Swedish to English by the author, and are available in English for the very first time.
Maria Haskins made her literary debut in Sweden in 1989 with 'Blå' ('Blue'), a well-received collection of poetry published by Swedish publishing house Norstedts. Her two other collections of poetry 'Honung' ('Honey') from 1992, and 'Den tredje' ('The Third') from 1995 received many favourable reviews in Sweden, and her poetry has been included in several anthologies.
Her English language debut 'Odin's Eye' - a collection of science fiction short stories - was published in March, 2015.

About the Author
I was born and grew up in Sweden, but have been a resident of British Columbia, Canada since the early 1990s. Currently, I'm located just outside Vancouver with my family - a husband, two kids, and a very large dog. I've had several books published in Sweden, including three collections of poetry, a novel, and a collection of science fiction short stories. I'm currently working on a science-fiction novel, and my first Smashword's book "Odin's Eye" (a collection of science fiction short stories) was published on March 16, 2015. Fantasy, historical fiction and science fiction are my favourite literary genres, but I have always been a voracious reader. My favourite writers include Ursula K Le Guin, Ray Bradbury, T.S. Eliot, George R.R. Martin, J.R.R. Tolkien, George Orwell, Hemingway, John LeCarre, Umberto Eco, and Colleen McCullough (especially her Masters of Rome-books).
