Sue Campion, here, even though many of you know me as sgalletti or simply: Hugs, Sue. I'm actually English, Irish and Welsh, now married to an Irishman, through and through, and formerly married to an Italian (through and through), now deceased. It wasn't my fault!

I am thrilled to announce I am birthing a baby at the grand young age of 65. Her name is Pieces of Her Mind: Women Find their Voice in Centuries-old Forms. Her birth date will be November 15th and she can be viewed on, Barnes&, and in local book stores.

A versatile child, she is available in hard back, paperback, and kindle and nook versions. She is a brilliant and beautiful child, with numerous caring and very smart nannies, and you can find out more about her by visiting

sgalletti: Just returned from a 2 1/2 week trip to Italy. It was awesome. Rome for a wedding of very good friends and then a Papal Audience where Pope Francis was only ten feet away. Brought me to tears. Then, off to Lucca and Lake Como. Every place had its own unique character. Final stop - 8 days on the River Countess with Uniworld. All inclusive. Only 55 passengers and 60 staff. Had some amazing excursions, great sailing, and met some wonderful people. Now getting over jet lag and preparing final details for a fun class on Japanese Poetry Forms that will start this coming Monday. Some terrific poets are enrolled. Hope you will consider joining us.

    You are nothing short of amazing -- as always!

    I'm writing now because I needed -- NO! felt *compelled* to do so -- in order to brag and boast a bit on YOUR behalf.

    IMHO, someone needed to go on record, shouting how utterly BRilLiANt and iNSiGHtFuL FanStory has once again proven to be by rEcoGNiZinG the treasure you are and convincing you to OSmOtE some of those mULtiTuDinous talents you possess as a new Instructor.

    Having worked rather closely with you for some time now, I am confident your students will be richly blessed! (And I look forward to being one of those students in the near future!)
