"In my many years broadcasting I've met people from all walks of life - singers, actors, politicians and writers. Many have become friends over the years and Shirley is certainly a true friend. She's loyal, kind and a hopeless romantic," says Radio Presenter Robert Skates.
Shirley began by writing Valentine's Day rhymes for friends before having her first poetry published. Following the success of her first collection - Reflections - Shirley returns with Reflections Two, which also features, as a bonus, several of her engaging short stories.
The book is full of humour, romance and a feistiness that shows us a little of Shirley's personality. It's a beautiful collection of poetry; honest, haunting and heartrending.
