Sue Kientz began studying the astrological signs in 1977 as a way to learn more about symbolism in literature. Originally skeptical that astrology could have any value, after learning how to calculate charts, she was intrigued by the results.
Kientz has always included the large asteroids in her chart work, and sees the Dwarf Planets as the
finishing touches astrology needs to show that Time has actual (and often very beautiful) patterns and features.
A technical writer with a B.A. in Theater from Adelphi University and an M.A. in
English from University of New Orleans, Sue has lived in southern
1987. She created some of the first websites at UCLA in the early 1990s, and then worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for nine years on
websites that delivered employee services. Most recently Sue was employed at the California Institute of Technology in various documentation
capacities since 2006.
In 1997 while at JPL, Kientz created a children's web-story about Mars Pathfinder called A Little Rock
on Mars, which precipitated an avalanche of e-mail from kids and parents all over the world who adored Little Rock. She followed
up with stories about the Galileo and Cassini missions. These now-primitive websites are still available at
Suekientz.com in both English and a host of other languages. They might seem old-hat in format now, but they are maintained in the hope
that we don't lose the
history of the web as it gets more sophisticated.
When not working on MORE PLUTOS, Sue is busy feeding goodies to
dogs Luna, Pandora, Nova, and Peanut (waiting for treats at right),
a well-behaved brood which she shares with
boyfriend Ron in Pasadena, CA.
