"Sunny's poems brilliantly reflect life's sharp edges and gentle cycles.  She has a knack for nailing down the essence of life's sorrow and joy."  Elizabeth Laden, writer and publisher of the Island Park News.


"Sunny Bingo's poems will make you want to sing or cry, or both.  This amazing writer, who has written songs sang by Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Merle Travis, and Gene Autry has penned an array of words from the heart."  Karen Bossick, The Wood River Journal, Sun Valley, Idaho.
