Susan Dane Setin is the founder of SMART WOMEN Rising and an accomplished poet. Her first volume of poetry, Good-bye to White Knights and other moving vehicles, includes 50 poems that trace her personal journey from despair and disillusionment as a young woman to a world where spirit is art and life is the journey of the artist. Susan’s poems are insightful and deeply human—full of universal truths that resonate within—and build a bridge between the sensual and spiritual. She is married and lives in Los Angeles, California.
“My original plan was to get married, live in the suburbs, have three kids, a great husband, and a big dog. And maybe give some after-school piano lessons. But things rarely turn out the way we plan.” —Susan Dane
