All Books and songs are in the ASCAP Music Directory. Her most recent release (I’m So Tired) Album and first song on the album released in 2023. Battling 3C Colon & 4C Colon Cancer this artist will never quit writing and working with all the people she works with in music the world round. It is a passion and never ending goal to bring music to the whole world. Its everyday life and the heartstrings of the world to be able to write in an emotional urge to have people (feel) my energies in all my works. Feelings are the roots of good music no matter what genre. I am a stay at home songwriter that has so much going on and immerse myself into writing music & books. I am not like most songwriters these days. I don’t sing but hear the music in my head to the songs. And most do not get to pick their singers like I do to put what I think should be put into my songs. I pick singer, instruments and how it is to be sung. “I’m So Tired “was sent to an awesome gentlemen Gary Carter in Nashville and he did the song for the new album free of charge as a donation to me .He also furnished the singer and hooked me up with The O’Donnell’s out of for the music to the album #1 song. These two men are the cream of Nashville and was an honor to work with. Gary Carter has worked with Kenney Chesney and Alan Jackson, Faith Hill and Randy Travis, Connie Smith, Marty Stuart, Darrell Singletary and so many more. A Great Gentleman who took my song for this album and made it great.
My biggest selling song right now is “Lord Watch over Me” It has busted royalties all over the world in many religions. I work with many the world over and anyone can contact me with only asking and I do charge low fees to help everyone out. All keeps me working the year around as I fight this terrible disease. Riches I am not after but Love of all music is my hearts passion in so many ways.
