Single Broke Female eBook Cover (2022).jpg


Single Broke Female is Macha's second published poetry collection. It explores themes of womanhood, sexuality, and emotional angst.

Zarina Macha struggles to make ends meet as a writer and musician living in 21st century London. Hopping between part-time lovers and jobs, she lives off the charity of student loans and her mother.

One day, she decides to take a chance and self-publish her work, supposedly to charm her way onto people’s bookshelves. Macha wants success, the good life and she’s willing to struggle for it (although not kill or take over someone else’s identity; that could get a little messy).

Above all, she wants to share her second poetry collection with those who may enjoy the wits and words she is able to twinkle. (Not to toot her own horn.) Stepping into this strange world of independent authors, she embarks on a journey from which there is no going back…

The book had me hooked since the moment I read the first poem... The brutal truth of her poems had me spellbound. The author had the audacity to present all the aspects of womanhood in the brutal light with nothing lurking in the shadows.

- Shreya, reviewer at Goodreads

Packed with insight and understanding, this is one young woman’s journey through life, love and the world, and it’s brilliant.'

Petrina Binney,

Poetry is a hit or miss with me, and this was a definite hit. While I couldn't relate to all the poems, I found the vast majority well written, imaginative, and intriguing.
