Trudy’s background was initially in music and the arts. This is reflected in her poetry, which is both lyrical and highly individual.
She was born an identical twin and grew up in a small village in western New York State, born to hard working immigrant parents. Trudy taught music after graduating from Syracuse University. It was there she met her husband when he returned from World War II as a decorated B 24 pilot. They moved to California where she raised a family, played flute in local symphony orchestras, studied art, and began to write poetry. She qualified in English as a Second Language at UCLA and taught advanced classes in California, Mexico and Japan. Prentice-Hall published an English grammar text that she wrote. Her love of all things creative continues.
