Kim Taplin read English at Somerville College Oxford and still lives in Oxfordshire with her family. She is known as a nature writer as well as a poet. Tongues in Trees was a series of connected essays looking at poems and prose extracts from writers such as John Keats, John Clare, Thomas Hardy, David Jones, J R R Tolkein and Frances Horowitz have responded to and celebrated nature. Three Women in a Boat Journey up the Thames recreated Jerome K Jerome’s journey up the river and Kim Taplin’s journals provided the basis for the subsequent book.
