‘An unparalleled feel for narrative’, ‘technical genius’, ‘great writer’ — are words which have been used of me.
In all environments — including my purpose built creative space where I run the Cabin Creatives — I am stone and story circle above literary circle. I believe in the timeless, equalising power of words and the modern need to express them, in your own way, to reach your true nature.
Books speak for themselves
A great writer, a great facilitator, a great person
Suzanne Power is insightful, intuitive, has a profound grasp of characterisation, and an unparalleled feel for narrative. She understands not just books, but human beings and their myriad dramas, which makes her a great writer herself, and a great person to facilitate the writings of other people.
Suzanne has helped me with several of my novels. She's kind, wise and honest.
Gifted and acclaimed, warm and encouraging
A gifted and critically acclaimed writer, Suzanne Power is also a warm, encouraging and inspiring mentor, one who has always put her extensive experience in the publishing industry to great use encouraging and guiding the talents of others. Suzanne has always had a real talent for getting the best from others, while ever mindful of the many challenges writers face on the road to publication. Suzanne’s guidance is inspiring, creative but above all practical and cannot fail to be of benefit to writers young and old. In my experience Suzanne’s guidance is invaluable and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

She writes the truth
Some people think that writing is largely about words. It's not. It's about emotion and emotional truth. It's about penetrating into heart of something, however you do it. It's about stripping away so that truth can be revealed. Sometimes it's the absence of words that is important. I've only met a few people who understand what writing is about. Suzanne Power is one of those. The truth. Plain unvarnished prose. She can write it and she understands it.

A wonderful writer who cares
Read her books, listen to her voice, learn from her, be intrigued and confronted by the ideas and characters she creates. Meet a wonderful writer and, more importantly, a person who cares deeply about her own work and the work of others.
