Tricia has a voice disability known as spasmodic dysphonia (SD). What some describe as a “strangled” voice she prefers to think of as edgy. Her SD does not prevent her from giving poetry readings with great enthusiasm.  Several  poems about spasmodic dyphonia appear on the online journal section of this site. Two of her posted poems, “Crabby Apples” and “If We Crack, Let’s Do It Together” include recordings of her reading of these poems.
