Gabrielle Yetter is a British author who was born in India, raised in Bahrain, and worked as a journalist in South Africa, before travelling to the U.S. on holiday where she remained for more than 20 years.

In 2010, she and her husband, Skip, sold their home, gave away most of their possessions and bought one-way tickets to Cambodia where she wrote The Sweet Tastes of Cambodia (a book about traditional Cambodian desserts) and The Definitive Guide to Moving to Southeast Asia: Cambodia. Together with Skip, she wrote Just Go! Leave the Treadmill for a World of Adventure (based on their adventures and the experiences of others who made significant changes their lives), and later published two children’s books, Ogden The Fish Who Couldn’t Swim Straight and Martha the Blue Sheep.

In 2019, she published her first novel, Whisper of the Lotus, which was long listed in the 2019 London TLC (The Literary Consultancy) Pen Factor writing competition.

Gabrielle lives in Eastbourne, East Sussex. And The Clouds Parted is her first poetry collection and was mainly created during lockown.

And The Clouds Parted (poetry) by Gabrielle Yetter. Book cover
In March, 2020, the world had just gone into lockdown and life felt frightening, dark, and hopeless. Gabrielle Yetter was on a bicycle ride on a misty, damp morning. Then, suddenly, the sun broke through, the air warmed, and the clouds scattered. Thus came the inspiration for her first poem (and the name of the collection): And The Clouds Parted..the first in a collection of poignant observations about life, loss, love and survival.
