Author Biography


Author Biography: Suzy graduated from University of Reading in 1988, starting her career at Transworld Publishers, stimulating her love of books and publishing. After working creative and management roles in PR and corporate communications  she set up a freelance copywriting business.  Returning to her love of writing she wrote and published her first poetry collection, Songs of My Soul, 2017, to wide acclaim. The collection was self-published by Suzy, who painted the cover art, and worked directly with the designer and printer to deliver 200 copies of the book, which quickly sold out, through her appearances at poetry readings and events. Songs is currently stocked in three London bookshops,  with paperback copies available online

Description of Songs of My Soul.  Songs of My Soul is a diverse debut poetry collection by British author Suzy Rowland Rigg, which draws on contemporary and classic influences. ‘Songs’ utilises a wide variety of poetic styles and the main theme is passionate observations of what it means to be human:  love, loss, parenthood, lust, grief. Her reflections are skilfully delivered. Suzy has sculpted the collection into three parts: Discovery, Holy Fire, and Resurrection to ease the reader through their own spiritual appreciation of the poems.
