Lady Beastie was raised in the Rocky Mountains of Banff, Alberta. She began writing and enjoying poetry at a young age. Grown Up Poetry Rhyme Time is her first poetry book and it's a collection of new and older work. By merging Nicola Marie Rough's beautiful art with her poetry, she hopes that an exploration of ownership and a sense of relationship between both the poems and the art will emerge. Lady Beastie is excited to share these poems and to continue to share her poetry with you.
