Suzannah Gail Collins

I am the author of a poetry chapbook, I Will Meet You at the River, (as Suzannah Gilman) the mother of four adults, frequent traveler, and a licensed attorney who represented victims of domestic violence under a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Justice Office on Violence Against Women. My poetry, essays, fiction, and nonfiction have in such in such publications as The Florida Review, Pearl Magazine, Calyx Journal, Green Hills Literary Lantern, Pearl Magazine, Prick of the Spindle, Slow Trains, The Cafe Review, and The Meridian Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, and I have recently begun competing in flash fiction slams, winning every one I’ve competed in. Twice nominated for a Pushcart Prize for my poetry, I now concentrate on blogging for The Gloria Sirens and writing fiction. I live with my husband, the poet Billy Collins, in Florida.

What She Said, July 24: Anna Quindlen

I am changing his diaper, he is kicking and complaining… he weighs little more than a large sack of flour and yet he has laid waste to the living room… No one cares about order, he is our order, we revolve around him. AI look at his… face and unfocused eyes and fall in love with him… and think… I will do anything for you as long as we both shall live, world without end, amen.
―Anna Quindlen, from NANAVILLE
