Artist's Biography

An astrologer once told Rose Lobel that the stars were at war with themselves on the day that she was born. She leans toward believing this, since a series of mishaps during her birth has left her dealing with cerebral palsy. 

Nonetheless, she has become a poet, a prose writer (under the name K. R. Lobel) a single mother, and quite possibly the world’s only voice-disabled radio programmer (for 27 years she did a music show called What’s New on radio station KZSC in Santa Cruz, California.)

She lives with a dog and a garden, tucked away in the hills that border the Monterey Bay.
