Poet Susan Joyner-Stumpf, at the age of eight, began at first writing as an escape mechanism from a severely abusive home life.  After a short while, her talents from a Victim-standpoint began to emerge into the living passion of a writer who now considered herself a “Survivor.”  This author is considered, by peers, to be a Dark, Free Verse poet with a stream-of-consciousness style inspired by the late, great masters T.S. Eliot and e.e. cummings.  To her credit, Susan has six published books:  Dreaming White Horses, Tortured Light, Crimson Whispers, The Ragdoll Chronicles, Grief Shards and Other Remains, and her last, Language of Moon.  Language of Moon is available on Lulu.com and will soon be available on Amazon.  Dreaming White Horses is out of print.  But all other books are available on Amazon.com now.  She is also published in numerous Anthologies and has won several Editor’s Choice Awards, winnings and recognition from the American Poetry Society and multiple Awards from the successful social internet writing site, Writing.com, where she has a fan base that follows her.   Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Susan Joyner-Stumpf now calls the Colorado Rockies her home and resides with her husband, Howard, on their 60-acre horse ranch, Rainbow Walkers, along with a menagerie of four-legged animal friends that own them.


Language of Moon is by far Susan Joyner-Stumpf’s greatest efforts to date, expelling all the growth and spiritual awareness she has arrived to at this point.  This new body of work is the continuing journey of this Dark Poet, who suffers from Chronic Depression, to find light and viable meaning beyond the vortex of sadness and riveting despair, above soft glimpses of happiness mixed with fragments of disillusion; to finally bring all life’s experiences and whatever it has to offer to new levels of genuine acceptance.
