Catriona O'Reilly, reviewing Erratic Behaviour of Tides (1998),
with others, in The Irish Times [30 Jan. 1999] notes an 'evident
gift for aphorism' and a 'gentle, whimsical wit' in poems such as Transactions
and Restorers v. the Ceiling Vandal or The Snow Queen in Spain
and encourages the poet to develop beyond the 'elusive shades of feeling'
that she mentions in the collection.
