While writing was always fun for me it was my friends that encouraged me to pursue it.They would say, there's something greater in the words and thought I had a gift to touch people.They would share experiences with me, I would write about them and they would ask:
“How did you do that? You captured it all so perfectly”
I never really had an answer, the words just came and I put them on paper. Over the years I’ve continued this path and found no greater satisfaction than knowing the words I write touch people’s heart.That in some way the words provide comfort, strength and the courage to help others live happier and healthier lives.
A beach kid at heart, I grew up in Simi Valley California, playing softball, camping at the beach and writing. Coming from a family of 5 siblings and artistic parents, there was never a shortage of excitement and experiences. I now reside in Denver Colorado, where I continue to write, own a business and coach girls softball.
Some of the best lyrics I've come across lately and a reminder, who we've been is not who we have to be...
Be grateful for those that have passed through your life, show appreciation, make amends when you can and remember, burnt bridges can be rebuilt. Thank you to all those that have left their mark on my life...My friends and my family
