In Daphne and Her Discontents, Jane Rosenberg LaForge investigates the relationship between fathers and daughters. She returns with Medusa’s Daughter, in which she wrestles with the legend of Medusa to explore the life and legacy of her own mother. A simultaneous act of homage, and revision, Medusa’s Daughter asks whether an inheritance is fate or merely a template that can be rejected or embraced. The poems also explore how one anonymous woman, seemingly consigned to a life designed by patriarchal culture, still influenced generations, and inspired them to live on their own terms.

In 2018 I took part in Anna Radchenko's Creative Breakthrough Marathon. This clutch of poems, on the themes of monstrosity and femininity, was the result. I was afraid of being seen That my gaze Turns people to stone I never knew How wonderful A world of statues is Your doors mean nothing No lock Can keep me out.

Haunted by very different pasts, three travellers journey together across a continent riven by clashes of faith and race. Odestus, the war criminal flees from justice Persapha, new to all things human, yearns for a way and a place to belong Marcus Fenwell, schooled in diverse talents, seeks a future beyond a wine bottle But past and future entwine to snare them all, for the Medusa has not been forgotten nor her daughter forgiven. The sergeant glanced between uncle and niece for a moment, savouring their nervous anticipation. "I heard some gossip last night from the old country, put a few things together." He bent forward to leer in Persapha's face. "I know who you are. I know whose daughter you are." He swung towards Odestus. "And pissed as I may be, I can even make a guess as to who you are, Mr Demus." There was a rush of movement. Paralysed by indecision Persapha watched as Odestus raised his hands, fingers twisting in an intricate shape. Kullick caught him by the wrist, turning and twisting his arm in a cruel snap which threw Odestus off balance with his good hand forced up behind his back. The sergeant huffed, breathless and ill-tempered from the brief exertion. "Now, I was only going to ask the girl here for some money, for a secret to be kept. But now, seeing you here ..." He glanced over his shoulder to the city wall; a sentry on the parapet had turned in their direction. "Maybe there's more money to be had, and others as would pay it. Uncle, eh? Little Dema had no brothers, but I did hear of another name often linked with hers, a little wizard ..."
