SUZANNE WHITE eBooks
Author/Astrologer Suzanne White has a dream life! Suzanne is American, but she lives in France and Buenos Aires. She has been a college professor, a fashion model, a journalist, an interpreter, a novelist, a fireworks salesperson, director of a Parisian Couture boutique, an elevator operator, a shoe salesperson, a single mom and a simultaneous translator. In 1971, she began writing articles for women’s magazines and by 1975 had written her first book about Chinese Astrology.
Suzanne has published four best-selling books on both western and Chinese Astrology. She is well known and respected as the "High Priestess" of both Chinese& Western Astrologies. All of Suzanne White's books sell steadily and remain in print. Since 1995, White has been a continued presence on the Internet, at first working for both AOL and Disney sites. In 2001, she started her own web site WWW.SUZANNEWHITE.COM in English.
A PIONEER IN THE ONLINE BUSINESS
In France, during the eighties, Suzanne White was asked to develop her own astrology site on the MINITEL Network - a videotext computer network originally designed by the nationalized French telephone company to replace the printed phone book.
The French Minitel network has been used (and still is today) to display and sell everything from train tickets to tarot cards. It contains vast areas of personal ads and many astrology and psychic network sites. Suzanne White’s site was financed by a French computer company which had one of the largest “servers” during that time. The site did very well but flagged when Ms White began returning more and more to the States. Minitel time is billed by the minute on a user’s bimonthly phone bill. Content providers are remunerated by the phone company. In 1989, Suzanne White bought herself a house in Provence and quit the Minitel to go back to writing books.
At its inception (1993), Suzanne White was asked by its creator to work for AOL’s ASTRONET, an astrological site. On ASTRONET, Suzanne had her own area all about CHINESE ASTROLOGY. Beyond the evergreen character readings available to all ASTRONET users, White hosted a weekly 2 hour Sunday night live chat session, answering lovelorn questions for AOL users across the world.
On ASTRONET, Suzanne White also posted a weekly lovelorn column (question and answer) and offered a paying service to her readers who wanted her to consult with them regarding personal problems. Suzanne’s “ASTRO LOVE ADVICE “ was one of the first credit card-based services on AOL. In those days, White handled all the credit checks herself from a home office credit card machine. The service and the area were hugely successful. Regrettably, because she was spending too much of her book writing time and receiving no remuneration from AOL, White quit ASTRONET in 1996.
In 1997, Suzanne White went to work as anchor for an astrology section on CHANNELA, an ambitious Asian/American Web site designed to explain all aspects of Asian culture to its users in a modern, upbeat way. Her ChannelA site and its extensive content is web-ready and available from ChannelA’s archives.
On ChannelA, Suzanne White offered not only her in-depth Chinese Astrology character readings (type in your birth date and up comes your personal reading), but she also produced a weekly relationship column and wrote 24 original weekly horoscopes in both Chinese and Western Astrologies. Suzanne’s witty and whimsical approach to addressing her readers’ needs gave her (150-200 wd) weeklies special meaning for ChannelA users. Those weeklies drove a lot of traffic to the site.
Again, on ChannelA, White offered her relationship consultations to users. The service was called, “THE RELATIONSHOP”.
The ChannelA site closed in early 1998.
In 1999, Suzanne White began writing weekly horoscopes for the fresh and popular PETSTORE.COM . She invented a hugely amusing column called:
“ THE ZOODIAC™ Astrology for Pets. “ Of course, Pet owners race to PETSTORE.COM to read Suzanne’s witty forecasts for the pet’s month ahead.
In short, Suzanne White is a pace setter. She is also a capable, hardworking and very funny writer. White has an enormous following and is admired and beloved by her fans the world over.
Suzanne White is also a literary translator. She translated two novels. One French novel for Putnam Publishing of NY. In 1987, she translated an American novel (HOT FLASHES by Barbara Raskin) from English into French for Eds. Robert Laffont.
