Suzanne Kingsbury,MFA, a Fulbright scholar, has a very nicely-paced writing style. “making book dreams come alive, one beautiful word at a time…”
”People Magazine wrote in review of author Suzanne Kingsbury, Writes powerfully. – She’s also a powerful speaker.”
A traveling salon for kids and grown-ups, her presentations and workshops arrive at the heart of what kids and grown-ups need today, allowing them to heal their fears and express their formidable imaginative powers using creative expression. Based on a model of neuro-theology discovered at Penn and Harvard which teaches the student to cease negative activity in the brain in order to allow the creative part of the mind to take over. It is powerful work and creates an almost alchemical reaction in both the teacher and the student. It has changed lives.
Named “The Book Shaman” by award-winning author, Suzanne’s method of engagement is based on a neuro-theologic study at Penn and Harvard, which allows for cessation in the negative activity of the brain, so the creative mind can flourish.
Using positive peer review to build ideas and explore previously taboo themes, she creates talented writers of every age group.
Recently featured by the Writer’s Guide as one of our country’s foremost experts on creativity and the imaginative process, Suzanne is a Fulbright scholar and the author of two critically- acclaimed coming-of-age novels, both of which have been optioned for film.
“Editing is, for me, about allowing, listening, empowering the author to reach his or her vision. The editor should be almost invisible, a wise, very deft, sweet voice in your head that says, quietly, You can!
And then gives you the skills to reach your goals and, ultimately, reach past them.”
Her work can been seen in Glamour Magazine, People Magazine,
The LA Times, The Atlantic Journal Constitution and many others.
I am now working on the novel, Jesse’s Last Ride, a wild book about four young people on Connecticut’s gold coast during the Regan era. I hope it will finish and send itself out soon, but I am not pressuring it. I am also working on a book called Wild Words, Beautiful Body with yoga guru (she hates it when I call her that, but sorry, it’s true!) Diana Whitney, founder of Core Flow Yoga and author of the syndicated column Spilt Milk. Wild Words, Beautiful Body is about finding again what we lost as women. It’s a sort of Women Who Run with the Wolves meets Eat Pray Love, and I will let you know when it hits the stands.
She was the co-editor of the anthology of southern writers, The Alumni Grill and have been anthologized in The Blue Moon Café; At My Grandmother’s Table; Birds of a Feather.
Atlanta Magazine, Glamour magazine, People, the LA Times among many others.
She won the Oxford Town Fiction Prize.
