I have come across so many talented, kind and generous writers during my time on WP; I am proud to be a part of such an incredible community. There are so many of you who I want to write about, to honor for your spirit and your work, I could write a post every day for the entirety of my time in the blogging world.
Today, I want to write about Suzanne Craig – Whytock. Suzanne is the real deal in every way. She makes us all laugh every week with her blog, My Dang Blog, she has written 2 novels, Smile and The Dome, countless short stories, and now her first poem, Dryad, has been published. She has incredible range and depth, and to top off her immeasurable talent, she is a kind, generous, supportive and absolutely lovely woman. She also has purple hair, which gives her that super cool awesomeness factor!
As a writer myself, there are writers who I can’t help but be in awe of, writers who teach me and make me want to be better; Suzanne is one of those writers. Her range is something I believe to be a rare gift; a person who can so seamlessly go from writing humor, to fiction, to poetry, and do all of it well, is extraordinary. As someone who aspires to write fiction, I look to Suzanne’s mastery of story telling, and it inspires me. As a poet, I can’t help but love the dreamlike quality of her poems, which are also beautifully crafted. As far as the humor, I just want her to keep writing her blog so I can keep laughing every Sunday!
Thank you, Suzanne, for everything you write and for all of the wonderful things you bring to the lives of so many! I am proud to know you!
