E. A. Gleeson has that rare talent of lifting a moment of intimacy into the realm of universal truth, of capturing instances of recollection and infusing them with emotion and thoughtful language where every word gleams. Maisie and the Black Cat Band is her second award winning book with IP. The first, In Between the Dancing, won the IP Best Poetry Award, while this one was Highly Commended in the 2011 Awards. E. A. Gleeson was born in the town of Coleraine but spent most of her childhood on a Soldier Settlement farm at Camperdown in Victoria's Western District. She has travelled extensively including two years working as an Australian Volunteer in the Pacific. She has received degrees from Monash, La Trobe and Australian Catholic Universities. Her professional life has encompassed fields as diverse as Education, Media, International Aid and the Funeral Industry. Her poems have been published in Australia, Ireland and the USA, her essays in The Age, The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald and Island. After a lifetime of moving, Anne has settled into living in the Daylesford region with her husband Steve. She divides her time between walking the trails of the Hepburn Shire, writing, community involvement, enjoying the company of those she loves, and working as a Funeral Director and Celebrant.
