Caroline Davies

Caroline Davies’ Convoy was published by Cinnamon Press in 2013. She was born in Norfolk to Welsh parents and spent much of her childhood by the sea. She studied East European History at the University of London and Creative Writing with the Open University. Convoy was inspired by the experiences of her grandfather, James ‘Jim’ Honeybill, who served on the Blue Funnel Line ship M.V. Ajax during the Malta convoys and also by her mother’s stories of growing up in North Wales during the war. She blogs occasionally at http://advancingpoetry.blogspot.com/. She is working on a collection of poems in collaboration with Vanessa Gebbie in response to war memorials which will be forthcoming from Cinnamon Press in 2016.
