Piper Castillo - Clearwater Community Reporter

Clearwater Community Reporter

I grew up in Fort Lauderdale and received an English degree from Florida Atlantic University. As a community news reporter for the Tampa Bay Times, I cover north Pinellas County and also write the "Nightstand" column for the Sunday book pages. The only thing better than a good read is a day in the sun with my family.
