Katherine Mayfield, the owner of The Singing Lobster, is an award-winning author whose love of performing goes back to childhood. She majored in theater in college, where her favorite roles were Annie Sullivan in The Miracle Worker and Terry in Lady House Blues.
Katherine worked as a singing telegram performer with the Singing Bees in Denver for many years, inhabiting such characters as bees, penguins, a chocolate chip cookie, Cupid, Leopard Lady, and "Polly" Parton. After living in St. Louis, Denver, Los Angeles, NYC, and Western Massachusetts, she is very happy to be settled in Maine.
As an actress in New York, she appeared Off-Broadway, in independent films, and in small roles on the Guiding Light. She enjoys using her performing skills and making people laugh, and finds that providing singing telegrams offers a nice social break from the isolation of writing.
