About Me

Why Trout Towers? I married into a recording studio called Sonic Trout. Trout Towers is where it all happens.

I’ve written for the Christian Science Monitor, the Provincetown Banner, the Barnstable Patriot, The Magazine of Yoga, MamaPop, Bachtrack, and of course Trout Towers. Opera Betty, my opera show for people who hate opera, airs on WOMR the second Sunday of each month.

I’ve been very lucky to write for publications, people and businesses I like.
