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.

Susan Entsminger is a writer, painter, and ecologist. She studied botany and French at Humboldt State University and has a Ph.D. in biology from Dartmouth College.

In addition to books, we also offer numerous services including: art archiving (see Harold Taylor Photographs), technical and scientific document production (see software and projects with National Park Service & National Science Foundation), plus editing, design, and illustration services for individuals and corporations.

Queries welcome. Please email Susan Entsminger:

Gary has written two books of poetry, Two Miles West & Four Ravens.

Susan's art appears in Dabney Stuart’s Open the Gates: Poems for Young Readers and Victoria Sullivan’s Why Water Plants Don’t Drown.
