June Hall lives in the heritage city of Bath with her novelist husband, Greg. Her son, Richard, lives and teaches in Spain, and her daughter, Katherine, lives and works in London. She began her career in the editorial department at Faber & Faber where she eventually became an editor before moving into paperback and American publishing and eventually setting up a literary agency which 10 years later in 1988 was to merge with the giant agency, Peters Fraser & Dunlop.

Major life events have inevitably shaped the subject matter of her poetry – in particular the stillbirth of her fist son, Philip,in 1987, and the diagnosis in 1997 that she had Parkinson’s Disease. Both led to writing poetry and publishing it in various magazines. This is her third collection, following The Now of Snow in 2004, and Bowing to Winter in 2010. She also co-edited The Book of Love and Loss with R V Bailey.
