It was a year and a half of close collaboration, so that we became incredibly in sync. Even the publisher could not tell always who wrote which poem.

A very rewarding partnership and just proves that a lot of hard toil and sweat and focus pays off!  8)

Oddly enough, I was trying to guess which of you had written certain poems — almost impossible ... although I already knew “comfort of crows”, of course!  :)

Great!  :D

Yes, the collaboration over 18 months or more, though various versions and different poems meant the styles converged. I think Vanessa Proctor said it was a similar experience for her collaboration too!  8)

warm regards,
Alan
