On good days, Stella Blackstone lives east of the sun and west of the moon. On less good days, she lives at the bottom of a well. She finds ideas in all of these places and turns them into songs, poems and rhymes. She has read and written poetry for as long as she can remember, and her favourite books include Louis Untermeyerâ€™s A Childâ€™s Treasury of Poetry, which was a constant companion throughout her childhood, Paolo Coelhoâ€™s The Alchemist, everything by T.S. Eliot, and William Buckâ€™s translation of The Ramayana. She lives in southwest England, and enjoys walking and working in her garden as well as doing nothing whenever she has the chance.
