Mrs Ravoon

I am a … freelance writer, editor, and journalist with specialties in arts reporting and criticism, interview profiles, and memorials and obituaries (no, really). For 20 years, I wrote about the arts for The Santa Fe New Mexican, including the weekly arts magazine, “Pasatiempo.” Before that, I was a professional musician and also worked for nonprofit organizations in administration, finance, and fundraising

My free-lance writing credits include Gramophone (London), Opera magazine (London), New Mexico Magazine, USA Today, Opera Canada, Strings, The Aspen Daily News, The Santa Fean, The Diapason and The American Organist. I also write for various house journals and Websites.

My hobbies, besides reading, writing, and going to just about every kind of performance event I can (tractor pulls do count), include Victorian political and social history, railroads, and learning about American circus fat ladies of fame and flesh.
