Suzie Palmer, Australia

  Suzie Palmer began writing her life story and poetry in 1999 at 28 years of age. She was encouraged to write after a mystical encounter with a unique Indian sage. ‘You are a writer; you must write’ he told her ‘you must write about your life. People like reading about other people’s lives, and they’ll like reading about yours. You’ll also write poetry, teaching people how to be happy even if they can’t run and jump’. In early 2009, Suzie published: Loving All – her first book of poetry and from mid 2009 she has regularly recited poems in public, usually accompanied by a guitarist and drummer. She loves sharing her musical poetry with the world! In response to the encouragement of the sage, Suzie continues to work on her autobiography, which she currently views as her central life work. In addition, she writes reviews for prominent poets, of which Ban’ya Natsuishi, Sayumi Kamakura, and Azsacra Zarathustra are her most celebrated thus far! Writing the Foreword of Hybrid Paradise by Ban’ya Natsuishi has also been a joyous and wonderful experience for Suzie.

Adam Donaldson Powell, Norway

Adam Donaldson Powell (USA-Norway) has published several books previously, including novels/novellas, poetry, literary criticism and more - in USA, Norway and India. He writes in English, Spanish, Norwegian and French. Mr. Powell is also a visual artist (painter, installation artist and photographer), and a literary critic (primarily poetry books, haiku books, and books of short prose). 


Ban'ya Natsuishi, Japan

Ban’ya Natsuishi, master of contemporary haiku and trailblazer at home on the overflowing haiku mountain of life, offers the world - Hybrid Paradise, a collection of his recent, liberating work. In 2009, I wrote a review in a book for him, The Poetical Achievements of Ban’ya Natsuishi, understanding the honour of casting my views on such outstanding haiku. Again, I am thrilled to be involved in the process of expounding works of this incredible author, who has been a great influence in forging ahead with my own style of muki-haiku (seasonless poem technique)! Hybrid Paradise contains a vast array of haiku, from life’s illusions during the golden experiences of life’s challenges—the sometimes exhilarating yet blurring of memories in our final days, to infinity, and the consciousness of elements.
