I grew up on the Southern Oregon Coast and have resided in Oregon all my life. My songs come from a lot of life experience, good and bad. Those of my friends to. I'm getting a little later start as a singer/songwriter then most but that's okay. Better late then never. I have 2 sons who are married with sons of their own. Yes, I am a grandma. My sons names are Israel and Justin and their wives are Vanessa and Jessica. My Grandsons are Andre', Dawson, and Oliver. I went thru the years of alcohol and drug abuse and have been clean and sober 19 yrs. Writing songs gives me an outlet for a lot experiences thru that time. I enjoy what I do and am happy that others enjoy my songs. When I perform it is so much fun watching people enjoy my music. What an awesome feeling.
