Ahead of Us is Haskell’s eighth book of poetry. Dedicated to his wife Rhonda, who lost her battle with cancer after a long illness, Ahead of Us contains poems of love, of two people forging a partnership together and of the inevitable end of that partnership when one person dies.
It is a celebration of life and and of the fragile thread that holds us here.
All author royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to Cancer Council WA.
