Suzy is a Canadian writer and music lover. Writing a book has been on her to-do list since she was six-ish, so it's good that she did it. Valencia and Valentine is her first novel, inspired by her time working as a debt collector in Saskatoon (she received a lot of death threats that summer). It came out in June 2019, and a second is on its way for June 2020—please hold your horses; these things take time. ...more

Call Me Garden Girl! Call Me Plant Person!

Plant people: I get you now. It's fun. I see it. 

Years ago, a friend brought me a succulent. I didn't know how to take care of it and I told her that and she said to me, "It's okay! These are hens and chicks and they're impossible to kill. You don't have to be good at plants. Just water them sometimes, and that's it."

I got excited. I had never, ever, not ever, not once, been able to keep a pla

Writing this review before I've even finished crying.
What a beautiful, heartbreaking novel. I feel like I went on such a huge journey alongside Gia, and I won't forget her or her family.

I loved this book so much. At the end, I feel very much like I've just watched an entire season of a television show and want summer to be OVER so I can watch the next one (there is a book 2, thank goodness). Very Canadian, very funny, very intriguin ...more

Loved this book. High Fidelity meets Garden State, but set in the present day (minus the pandemic). Made me laugh and cry and think.

Dear Reader,

Thanks so much for reading this book! It's my very first; I wrote it in 2015, as a new mom in the midst of a lot of sleepless nights (yes, that might explain why it's—I'll borrow the most commonly-used word from the reviews below—'weird')

"Lovely story and cleverly written. The protagonist is flawed, frustrating and hilariously wonderful. A touching and well-written book. "

“Too bad how the end of something could ruin the beginning and middle of it.”
Suzy Krause, Sorry I Missed You

“Do you know how much of my life I spent waiting for something terrible to happen? I was obsessed with it, consumed by it I spent every moment dreading it--and all of a sudden, here it was, and it was every bit as awful as I'd imagined it would be And then . . . life went on. I realized then how pointless and powerless fear is . . . .”
Suzy Krause, Valencia and Valentine

“Just one of those moments, you know, where you have no new information, but your brain rearranges all of what you do have and it suddenly makes sense.”
Suzy Krause, Sorry I Missed You

“As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split.”
kurt Vonnegut, Palm Sunday: An Autobiographical Collage
