Meet the Staff
Susan Crowe has been doing business since 2001 as MaLady's Poetry, an on-line writing and poetry service. When not creating words to enhance others' memories, she journals for her own pleasure, hence, Tales Flowers Tell, the musings of her heart incarnate. From her youth, Susan has had an infatuation with poetry, music, and literature. She avidly studies, reads, and writes in most poetry genres, with formal verse being a favorite (sonnet, villanelle, etc.). A mother of two and grandmother of three, Susan resides in Georgia with husband, Terry. She welcomes any opportunity to showcase her imagination paired with your unique occasion or event.
John Cochran is an engineer and computer geek who yearns to be creative on a daily basis. His creative outlet comes in the form of poetry, calligraphy, singing, and stand-up comedy. Raised in Tennessee, John specializes in the funny, clever, and technical arenas. He lives with his wife, Shanna, in Atlanta where they are active in church music and charities. John has written many poems, from love sonnets to song lyrics to rap music. He can weave the written word into a variety of settings and outcomes and welcomes the opportunity to rise to your challenging scenarios for prose.
We commission a couple of local artists/illustrators, adept in most art mediums, to convey your vision by creating a one-of-a-kind masterpiece to accompany your poem or ours.
Terry Crowe, who holds dual citizenships from England and Canada, is husband to Susan. His forte is sales, but Terry is actually the backbone of the company, handling most of its business aspects, including framing.
"There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats." Sixteen-year-old Tibby came to us as an abandoned kitty. This petite bundle of adorableness is a glorified member of our staff with full reign of the studio!
