Meet Suzanne Blaney, Author of Somewhere the Road Turns
Suzanne Blaney’s career as an award- winning author came about indirectly. She is also a multi-award-winning artist in the media of oil and pastel, whose twenty-year career included judging major exhibitions and lectures on her favorite medium, Pastel. She is a past president of the prestigious Pastel Society of the West Coast, and was Newsletter Editor for eight years. That position inspired an enjoyment of writing, and thus a second career.
In late 2011, the award-winning Adventure in Color – The Impressionism of Anita Wolff, was published. A biography of internationally-known artist Wolff features her teaching philosophies and 41 paintings in magnificent color.
Blaney has completed a second novel, So the River Flows, set primarily in Paris as the Nazis invade, and the after years during WWII – and a fifth book, also on art: Impressionism – The Inspiration – and Aftermath. Both are planned for publication later this year.
Blaney remains a Signature member of Pastel Society of the West Coast, a full member of the California Writers Club, Gold Country Writers, Auburn; Placer Arts League and Placer Arts.
