Black Roses is a poetic sequence written in the voice of Sophie Lancaster.

Twenty-year-old Sophie was attacked in a Lancashire park in 2007 and died several days later. The ferocity of the assault caused distress and outrage when reported by the international media and led to the creation of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, a charity opposed to all forms of hatecrime and victimisation.

The radio broadcast of Black Roses won the BBC Radio Best Speech Programme of 2011 and was shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award for Poetry.

One-third of all profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
