Suzanne is a Retired Registered Nurse certified in Med/Surg. She began writing poetry  in 1998 as a result from meditation during stress relief classes. Since retiring she has participated in poetry groups both in the Community and on-line. She is originally from Australia, has lived in the Hawaiian Islands for most of her adult life and now lives on the mainland US.  Her poetry is a mixture from all these  places.   In her writing she has explored many forms but finds ease of expression mostly in free verse.  Her poems are included in an Anthology "A Bridge to ALL Nations."with other poets from  Connie's site: Poetry for Thought.
