My Music Story



It has been a fabulous journey that I have traveled with music. 

I started writing guitar music when I was 11 years old in Kewanee, Illinois when my sister gave me a discarded guitar. I bought a tuning fork, a Beatles’ chord book, and taught myself how to play. I wrote a few songs with a childhood friend, and at 13 wrote my first solo song, “She Is Gone,” when my mother died. Later, I was part of a high school band called “The Tangerine Doorknobs.” I played and wrote some during college and grad school then took a creative break for 25 years. 

In late 2015, I began composing and writing songs again daily – at home, on the road, in airports, hotels and historic towns. I travel with a Taylor GS Mini Koa wood guitar. 

I am currently working on a songbook of original music for acoustic guitar and voice called "It's Always a Good Day When a Song Shows Up." This book will contain more than 60 songs, lyrics and chords, that I've written over 50 years. The ebook will include audio or videos. 

I am blessed by all the music friends and supporters in my life. Thank you for joining me on my music journey!
