“I’m still exploring what it means to be a woman of the west.  Born in Tucson, Arizona, raised in southern California, I’ve lived in eastern Washington since 1977 with my husband, Winston.  I am a mother, grandmother and great- grandmother!  I’ve been a singer, waitress, shopkeeper, nurseryman, florist, landlady, para-educator, and for 23 years, a community Arts and Humanities advocate.   I’ve been writing poems since I was 12.  My latest poetry book is an autobiographical collection called The Marrow. It may be available at your local bookstore.”

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
