I've had 1,000 copies of "Will You Care For Me?" professionally duplicated to fill orders of requests. There are some schools of gerontology who offer it to graduating students. I was asked permission for it to be played for a TV ad for a nursing home in Iowa.


Feeling a bit camera shy


All music is based on personal experience...motivated by a need for a song that I couldn't find elsewhere. "Gotta Get Away" to ponder dissolving a marriage or trying to repair it...(This song, BTW, won an honorable mention from Billboard's songwriting contest, placing in the top 10 percentile) "Kiss Me, Hold Me Closely" - trying to revive passion that used to be...."Summer Evenings" - reminiscing about 3 part harmony on the porch swing..."Face in the Mirror" - when you see your mother instead of yourself! "The Hybrid Rose" - a wedding song. "Papa and the Baby Bear" - a father-daughter dance for the reception. Everyday happenings!

The religious music can make hair stand on end. I only profess to be the dutiful stenographer. Without fail, I'm asked where that hymn can be found. Unfortunately, even 28 years later, only in a binder in my music room.

Having been inspired to write music with only sight-reading experience from high school choir, I was really challenged since I had no musical instrument. I drew a keyboard on loose leaf paper and "played" those silent keys in order to place notes on a hand drawn staff. I could hear the music (with interior hearing) and had to preserve it. I learned to play guitar by experimentation only. There was no book with pictured chords, and I was living in a foreign country. "So that's an A-minor 7th!"

My dream is to find someone to listen to and record at least demos of these songs and hymns so that I may finally have something worthy of submitting for possible publication.
