Susan A. Katz has had a love affair with poetry since the age of six. She has read it, written it, even dreamed it, and it has shaped her life and her view of the world, and of herself. Susan finds inspiration for her poems in the everyday business of living, of family joys and sorrows, in the stories of others, and in the vast and ethereal landscape of the natural world. Her poems reveal her intense passion for the living quality of language. On the Edge captures, with intensely personal poems, the human experience and examines the ways in which we are all connected through our shared humanity.
Her poems have been called “meditative and lyrical… exhibiting a strong sense of wistfulness and loss,” by poet Colette Inez, and “terribly powerful… oddly strong… wonderful,” by poet Dan Masterson.
