Biography of Susan Sparks

I have three grown children and five grandchildren. I graduated from Oklahoma University in 1980 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, Emphasis in Accounting.

In 1990 I became an unpaid humor columnist at The Cleveland County Record in Noble, Oklahoma. While there, two of my columns won first place in the Oklahoma Press Association Better Newspaper Contest under personal columns in my newspaper's division.

While I was a newspaper columnist I became ill with Bipolar Disorder. It turned my life upside down.

I started writing poetry and song lyrics seriously in October of 2003.

I'm happy to report that I haven't been sick since 2007. I'm now a happy person and have a stable life, although I am receiving SSI disability benefits. My dream is to become a professional writer. Updates


Fish, fish, fish,
I wish...
I double wish-
I were a fish.

Swish, swish, swish,
I wish...
I double wish-
I could swim like a fish.
