Light Behind the Shadows is a collection of poems that will touch most people who read them, for they deal with many aspects of life as we know it. Each poem is well-made and imaginative but not hard to read. Susan Skinner is not afraid to face many difficult subjects and fundamental thoughts that face us all. There is often a sense of hope and light in many of these poems that will possibly give people courage in their own experiences. These poems each have their own individual rhythm that suits the theme they are dealing with. Susan has always been convinced that there should be music and rhythm in poetry because those two attributes have made us mentally dance ever since we were taught nursery rhymes and responded to them unselfconsciously when we were very little. Poetry is for enjoyment and those quiet moments in a busy life.

Susan Skinner (pseudonym Susan Holliday) is a writer, teacher, calligrapher and printmaker. She has published four collections of poetry and her poems have appeared in a number of magazines and anthologies. Her agent (not for poetry) is Lesley Pollinger of Paper Lion Ltd. who has enabled Susan to publish a number of children’s novels.

She has had a wide career in education, ranging from art teacher in a hospital school to creative writing tutor and lecturer.

Susan has a big family as she and her husband took on her sister’s four children when her sister died at a young age.

She has three children of her own, five grand-children and three great-grand-children.

She now lives in a very friendly village, alone with her inspiring but time-consuming dog, Alfie, who does not go for walks but sniff-along, giving his mistress time to write haikus in her head!

Susan has always been fascinated by the world about her, the people in all their complexity, the countryside’s history and its natural beauty. She also finds reading a great solace and joy.
