My second book, Toy Soldiers, is experiencing a great lifetime, and my Gallery page on this website is becoming a little full! So for some of my more exciting updates of late, look no further than this section. If it’s happening now, it’s happening here. 🙂

Praise for Toy Soldiers:

‘A conflicted portrait of longing, angst, and self-assertion’ – Kirkus Reviews
‘I enjoyed how each poem flowed, had its own pace but there is a notable lyricism in the author’s writing that I found stayed consistently throughout. Throughout the collection I found that Tollyfield was able to craft poems that were immediately immersive and evocative. Each one left me pausing for a moment, contemplating the scene that had just been brought to life, before moving on to the next … I think that this is a great collection for fans of poetry. One that entices you back’
– LoveReading UK ambassador
