Lots has happened since I last wrote. My dear husband passed away in June of 2012. He had colon cancer and fought hard and bravely for nearly 7 years. Two years ago this month I met a new beautiful man and last June we married. I went through the depths of sadness to the heights of joy. I did stop doing gigs but started a new creative endeavor - I wrote a book and it will be published in August of this year. It's called "Mom and Me: My Journey with Mom's Schizophrenia". It is a biography of what I learned to be healthy while having a mom with a severe mental illness. More to come on that later. I am working on getting out there and singing again. so, more on that too to come. So, I'm back!
