March 2019 - It was an exciting month for songwriting! "Find My Way Back To Myself" was a semifinalist in the 2018 International Songwriting Competition, and it placed third in the 2019 Women's Freedom Song Contest. I co-wrote the song with my brother, nephew, and niece, and it was produced by Robbie Hancock Music. You can check it out here!
June 2018 - There are so many fantastic local bands from Vancouver Island, where I live in Canada. If you're looking for new music or playlists, I've created a Spotify playlist with some great indie folk and rock songs by bands from the Vancouver Island region. Other people's art inspires me to create!
March 2018 - I co-wrote a song with my brother, nephew, and niece a while ago--fun! Musician/producer Robbie Hancock helped shape the song into its final version, and the song made the semi-finals in two categories in the 2017/2018 Canadian Songwriting Competition! Very encouraging. Hoping to enter new songs next year.
February 2018 - I enjoyed reading short fiction as a featured reader on February 20 at the prose open mic hosted by Canadian Authors–Victoria at Good Earth Coffeehouse in Victoria, BC. Now back to a longer manuscript!
