The Keeper of Days is Suzanne's latest collection from Farolito Press of Colorado. Author and essayist John Nizalowski said that the book “displays a Manhattan sensibility moved to the rural Southwest.” Suzanne’s first book of poems, Passion Play, was published through Mestiza Press of Los Angeles in 2007 and was well received throughout the poetry community. Suzanne's interpretations of complex emotions are brief but insightful and clear, and distill those complexities down to intense images. Her poems have a regard for simple speech reminiscent of Pablo Neruda and Li-Young Lee that draw the reader in, to contemplate their own life and emotions. She has been published in various print and web magazines, including The Spot Magazine, Scissor Tale Review, Beginnings Magazine, The Aspen Daily News, The Daily Sentinel, Perspective Magazine, GTG Notes, Farmingdale Writer's Review, and the Grapevine Press. Suzanne has several art collaborations to her credit with visual artists Stephanie Amos and Caole Lowry of Planet Earth and The Four Directions gallery. She is also the poetry coordinator The Grand Valley Performing Arts Festival, hosting “Poetry in EEE-Motion,” a venue for the three energies of spoken word, music, and dance. She is a current member of The Academy of American Poets, Aspen Poets' Society, Sigma Tau Delta, co-founder of the Oasis Poetry Society, a member of The Colorado Poets Center, The Western Colorado Writers Forum, and has served as treasurer of the West Rockies Writers' Club. Suzanne has made various appearances on KAFM radio and over the internet on Blog Talk Radio. She has a degree in Fine Arts from the State University of New York and is due to complete her writing degree from Colorado Mesa University. A native New Yorker, she now resides in Colorado with her family.
My wife and I live in the foothills of the Rockies. Right now, I'm really into haikai and watching this beautiful black fox with a white-tipped tail come through our backyard boulders in the morning.
