Vitae: Conrad Reeder is a mother, a grandmother, a singer/songwriter, an educator and an author. After many years in the music industry, Ms. Reeder earned a MFA in Creative Writing and completed 16 hours in Mythological Studies with an emphasis in Jungian Therapy at the Pacifica Graduate Institute.
After the death of her husband, Roger Nichols, Ms. Reeder participated in the 2011 Hearbreak Clinic offered by Ginette Paris through the Institute for Cultural Change, and especially appreciated how the approach helped her to restore “some equilibrium after tremendous loss.” Out of that grief experience Reeder wrote Memory Clouds: Good Grief Bad Grief. Reeder also recently taught English Composition at the University of Hawaii, Maui Campus, and Palm Beach State.
In 2016 she mentored a Grief Writing Workshop at WeSpark Cancer Foundation.
Some of her other current creative projects include a new musical, Venus A Love Story, The Roger Nichols Documentary and a new play, Trailer Park Graffiti: a dramedy about sloppy Goldie and eclectic Alice, two warring neighbors who live in The Linger Longer Trailer Park in Holiday, Florida.
