AKA Sara L. Russell


NOW AVAILABLE ON CD ROM



KEDCO's latest poetry CD-ROM,
PINKY'S LITTLE BOOK OF SHADOWS,
by award winning poet Pinky Andrexa
aka Sara L. Russell, is a CD that takes
poetry very comprehensively into 21st
Century multimedia. It is a bravely pioneering
collection of poetry recitals in video
and audio, with much of the
background midi music for the spooky "Dark Shadows"
section written and sequenced by Sara,
and with the titles created in spectacular
animated lettering by Graham Ramsay in Australia.
This CD also features Sara's "Rogues Gallery",
a collection of scans of her fantasy rock
star paintings, also animations and
royalty-free photographs from Holland, England
and Ireland, for any use. We recomend
"Pinky's Little Book Of Shadows" to anyone
who knows Sara as Pinky and likes her work,
also to anyone who likes electronic books
for the DOS & WINDOWS based personal
computer and is curious to experience poetry
as a dramatic event.

Sara L. Russell was born in Woking, England. She grew up in Staines and was educated mainly in Surrey, after her family moved first to Devon, then to a small village in Surrey called Blindley Heath. It was her boredom in this small village (she has since moved on) which first drove her to draw cartoons - and begin to write poetry. "Poetry, to me, is sometimes hard work and sometimes instinctive, as with inspiration", says Sara. "When it is inspired, it simply arrives in my head, almost in the same way that buses suddenly arrive, or in the way that cyclists suddenly appear out of junctions, almost mowing down pedestrians crossing the street. Then, when it comes, you just go with it. Having said that, every poem will need careful re-drafting before it can be shown or read to other people. It is also important to read the classic poets." In recent years, the internet has become an essential part of Sara's poetry activities. After devising the light-hearted nickname in her newsgroup signature, "Pinky Andrexa, last of the Cyber Vixen Poets from Outer Space", she set up a web page to showcase the work of other poets as well as her own, also giving publisher addresses. She then started a poetry ezine, which features interviews with both professional and amateur poets from the UK and the USA. Through this ezine Sara met her current publisher, and was later delighted to win Kedco's January 1999 poetry competition with her poem "The Insomniac's Prayer". This poem is to be featured on Kedco's Turn of The Century Award Winners Anthology on CD rom.
