A vegan for over eight years, and vegetarian since she was 11, (basically as soon as she realised she was eating animals). The vegan link came much later, partly through ignorance of the cruelty in the dairy industry, but also because she didn’t really consume a lot of milk or eggs.
She used to run a vegan catering business (Patty&Franks) and also Little Phatisserie as Tanya, Dillon Jaxx is her pen name. She is passionate about animals and their welfare and also passionate about poetry. Whilst her poetry isn’t exclusively vegan as such, it focuses on social injustice and exploitation by humans of everything, including other humans.
She says “My poetry is often dark and uncomfortable, raw and honest. Being part of the LGBTQ+ community, our rights and discrimination are often part of my work. I am in the process of building a website and recording an audio cd.”
