Tina Tamsho-Thomas is a published writer, poet, spoken word artist, playwright and human rights activist with an international reputation, having performed with the likes of Lemn Sissay, John Cooper-Clarke and Benjamin Zephaniah

"In this highly readable, sorely needed collection, Tina Tamsho-Thomas tackles subjects close to many people's hearts. There are personal poems and political poems; poems designed to make you grin and others to evoke remembrance of horrors past. Some poems catapult us to the heart of Jamaica, or stir us in our front rooms: as we sip our tea, we are encouraged to expect 'cake, not crumbs'. Others teach us how we can mend a broken heart. Some poems deal with emotional, complex questions, such as excluded, absent fathers and the continuing colonialist onslaught on Africa. 'Someone Is Missing Me' celebrates the enduring spiritual relationship between Tina and her excluded, Nigerian father. This collection is guaranteed to empower Black women who seek out her wisdom and is an exhortation to re-position ourselves, to assume our rightful stature."  Akulah Agbami, Artistic Director, Sheba Soul Ensemble
