Thank you very much for stopping by... I'm a published songwriter who enjoys writing in a variety of genres but my main focus and goal is to write and tell people about the coming Kingdom of God and to give encouragement. Prior to 2010, I wrote a lot in many genres. It just is not my focus any more.

Most years I have the honor and privilege to play at The Feast Of Tabernacles in the fall. I occasionally do songwriting workshops for children and enjoy playing at Nursing Homes. I've been blessed to have some of my music sung by choirs, schools, receive airplay, and be used at dance classes.
I began writing lyrics in 2000..and not long after that in 2001, began to hear melodies on a regular basis. I've been writing ever since. Sometime in late 2009, my songwriting focus changed... Have been writing inspirational , faith-based songs since then... and sometimes they come very fast and I can't keep up. It is a gift...from
God as long as He allows me to continue writing...and I'm very thankful for His kindness and mercy.
I compose by ear. Although I'm not an accomplished pianist..I play and record the melodies I hear in my head. Am thankful for those who have recorded backing tracks and sung!
Hymns, Rogers & Hammerstein and Billy Joel... Took Piano lessons in first, 2nd and part of third grade...and continued playing after that.
