Greetings! I'm Sunny Cooper. I am a writer and consultant who migrates between my native territory, Oklahoma, and my adopted territory, California. I've lived in a horse barn, a sea captain's house, and spent summers in Mexico, England, and Hungary. Now, my home is a thousand roads in between in a 1976 Argosy Airstream.
I am a member of the San Diego Writers and Publishers Association, Certified Professional Writers and Editors, Project Eve, The Shakespeare Fellowship, and a Blackbird Fellow with the AROHO Foundation. I contribute to various magazines such as Southern Writers, American Cowboy, and NonDoc; my poetry has been internationally published in Severine and the upcoming WAVES anthology; and my author projects and collaborations have been featured in Rolling Stone and National Geographic.
My quiver is full of books, travel, publishing projects, writing and journalism awards; but my brightest feather is five feet tall and the junior vice president of Follow the Buffalo. My son's wit and curiosity keeps my world humming. His favorite novels are The Hobbit and The Giver.
For more corporate speak, take a peek at my profile over on Linkedin. But what you really want to know are my favorite books: Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich, The Whale Rider by Witi Ihimaera, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Blue Highways by William Least Heat-Moon, and Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen. My favorite childhood book was Island of the Blue Dolphins. You'll also understand how polite I've been to resort to a mere few choices here. Friend me over at Goodreads where we can be as indulgent about our book hoards as we like.
