Welcome to my website. Lots of information here about my music, writing, and craft.

I hope you go to my music page and listen to cuts from my four CDs. "Hallelujah! Amen." is my all-gospel CD. The other three are a romp around the seasons. "Sweet Mimosa" (summer), "Indian Summer" (autumn), and "Deep December Dreams" (winter).

I have now finished recording my spring CD and I'll release it early fall (a little odd, I know); it's called Spring: The Wind's Story.  This CD completes my cycle around the seasons.

I had thought my spring effort might be more hopeful but I have found myself telling the story of a spring that comes with some wrath: stronger winds, fiercer rains, and which promises nothing. Despite that, the prayer of St. Clare captured my attention: Live without fear. Your creator loves you, made you holy, and has always protected you.  Follow the good road in peace, and may God's blessing remain with you always. –St. Clare of Assisi (1194-1253)  May it be so.

These are the songs that are on it:

  1. Keep on Keeping on
  2. Call to Remember
  3. A Farewell Song
  4. Go Without Fear
  5. Some Days Just Go By
  6. Water Will Take Us All
  7. The Earth Has Learned to Sin
  8. A Fickle Wind
  9. They’re All Calling Out My Name: The Wind’s Story
  10. The Swallowtail
  11. Whether or Not
  12. Scuppernong
  13. A Plausible Explanation for the Redbud
  14. Ready to Wear
  15. Circus Coming
  16. Turn Toward Home
  17. Shine
  18.  

Also, the St. Matthew's Women's Singing Circle, which I lead, has three CDs out: "How Can I Keep from Singing," a Christmas CD called "Venite Adoremus," and our newest one "Homecoming."

My book "Little Chicken Stories" is  available from lulu.com and amazon.com. Check it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is a link to my lulu site on products (CDs, handwork, book) page.

I also have a children's poem & picture book: "Saving Time," a fable.  This is also available through Lulu.  It's very special to me as my mom painted the watercolor backgrounds that I used to create collages to go along with my poem.

Let in touch with me if you are interested in any of my crafts: embroidered baby blankets, napkins, quilted potholders and more.
