Gary and Susan Entsminger created Pinyon Publishing in 2008 and publish each year
6-10 unique books of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and art, including 2 issues per
year of Pinyon Review, a full-color journal of celebrating the arts and sciences.
Gary Entsminger (1950-2019) was a writer, naturalist, and computer programmer. He
wrote nine programming books, over 100 scientific/technical articles, and computer
software that helps scientists understand patterns of biodiversity and biogeography.
He wrote two books of poetry, Two Miles West & Four Ravens. And his books with Susan—Fall
of ’33, Ophelia’s Ghost, and Remembering the Parables—intertwine fiction, philosophy,
history, poetry, and art.
Susan Entsminger is a writer, artist, and ecologist. She studied botany and French
at Humboldt State University and has a PhD in biology from Dartmouth College. Susan's
art appears in Gary’s books of poetry as well as Dabney Stuart’s Open the Gates:
Poems for Young Readers and Victoria Sullivan’s Why Water Plants Don’t Drown. She
studies book arts at the Academy of American Bookbinding. And she designs and constructs
Pinyon’s handmade limited editions. Check out her work at Books by the Juniper Sea.
