About this author

Heather lives just outside Durham with her son and a neurotic half-Siamese cat. Under the name of Heather Cawte Winskill, her poetry was published in a variety of magazines and anthologies in the 1980s and 90s, including Psychopoetica, Krax, Tees Valley Writer, Braquemard and Coriander 1 and 2. She performed at numerous venues, from Cabaret à Go Go to the first Durham Literature Festival, where she supported Dannie Abse.


Her first collection, Spiderwoman, was published by Bay Press in 1995. In 1997, she developed chronic health problems that have left her virtually housebound, and for several years she wrote very little. In the last few years, she has found her voice again and has begun writing more regularly, as Heather Cawte.

“The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”

Heather Cawte We bed dwellers have to stick together ;)

I also appreciate being able to read a book again without being able to remember a single thing about it from the last reading :)

Sarah Jacquie Thanks for being such a good book pal =) I know what you mean about feeling intelligent before reading a book, too much in fact! Some books I feel like jello mush, then the second time I feel like its a new book and not in a different language! Hope you are doing well! I love to see how much you update, it makes me happy to know that while I am alone sometimes laying in bed, someone else is in another world while I am too!

Well, it's not what you might call a light read :) Seriously, the poetry is amazing, and I kept stopping and saying, 'So *that's* where that quotation is from...'

Definitely one to tackle when you're feeling intelligent ;) (That's why I've not read it till now!!)
