Had a Zoom voice lesson with Chris Judge - Susan Boyles voice teacher in Scotland 

I had this idea that because it was during Covid important people might be willing to take me on as a client. It was true. Chris Judge set up a voice lesson allowing it to be a 5:00 P.M Because of the time difference. Then I also had the chance to mention that maybe he could just pass my information on to Simon Cowell ( I heard he might know him ) smile smile. I am old and cute and bursting with talent. sent my Youtube links and don't you think the World would love another Susan Boyle. I will work hard and…

Finally made it to New York New York ! 

Yep I was 59 when I made my first trip to New York. Wow what a city. I said to Philip I knew that I would like it. How could you not like New York. I could feel the positive energy. So many dreamers. I saw Ellis Island where my grandfather migrated from Norway. Amazing ! All I have to say is thank you Grandpa John for being such an adventure seeker. Without you none of us would be here. That is a lot of people because you and grandma had nine kids. Thank you. I scheduled a voice lesson with Irina Fields…

Made it to Nashville !!! 


This is a copy of the letter that I handed to to Scott Borchetta at the front door of their company which was kind of hard to find because it was in a little house.The door was locked and I kept trying to open it when this handsome man with a baseball cap asked if he could help me. I has it all addressed but not sealed with a copy of my Children's book inside. He asked me if it was a C.D. I said no a letter and a book.So much fun. Philip also dropped me off at Paradigm Talent. The office was stunning…

I am so excited to be in my first Song writing contest ! 

I am very excited to be in my first song writing contest. It is a little bit scary I have to admit sharing my songs with more people than my AWESOME HUSBAND ! He is a crazy guy that supports me. We met 13 years ago December 27th, 2003. I was a busy mom raising kids recently divorced and I did not have time to date. I had just read two books. One was called " Why Men Love Bitches" and the other one was called " When God Winks ". I liked both books but the second one really spoke to me. It said God is…

My husband and I went to see Hillary at the Hilton downtown Portland in 2006. She gave an amazing talk. She was so good. She signed the tiniest pieces of paper for anyone that wanted her autograph. I could never do this. She was so patient !! We really do have to be thankful for the people that ever want to lead our country. There is so much disrespect ! Anyway I had come up with this product I was trying to promote. Little spray mist bottle with poems on the back. One was Hillary 2008 , one was Hillary…

Yes I'm gonna BEG !!! 

I wrote this on January 7th, 2016 my newest song. It came in twenty minutes.... all at once ! Boy that surprised me. I told Philip that I wanted to write about the high cost of college. By asking people to buy my songs I feel that is what I am doing. We have three kids, that could be well over 200,000.00 in student loan debt. This is CRAZY !!! for a Bachelors degree. This is not include a master degree. My stepson Casey was valedictorian of his high school made it into a private college. He did amazing. No…

I wanted to tell you about " Main Street America " and how that song came to be 

Well I have had a harder time wanting to share this true story because I have been feeling guilty. We had two homes. That seems a bit greedy. We got caught up in the housing catastrophe. We had walked passed our dream home twelve times while walking our dog on the golf course. One day we walked by and we saw a for sale sign. Two months later we were living there. We were shocked when we didn't have to sell our current home. We had a bright idea to make it a vacation home. Both coming out of divorce with no…

We really do need a Middle Class Revolution ! 

Real life seems to stir emotion especially in me. We like everyone else can't keep up with the expensive insurance which doesn't begin to cover what it use to. Being self employed is a mixed blessing. We had almost let our insurance go because we had the opportunity to sign up for what I call Obama Cares! We hadn't paid our premium.... it was late. Philip started having chest pains and he has had heart problems. It was very scary we raced around and found the money from someone who is extremely nice and…

A little info about my first song " One Moment in Time " 

I am addicted to Biographies. Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, Carol King, Rod Stewart, Steven Tyler, Susan Boyle, Taylor Swift, Dolly Parton, Adele, Shania Twain, Bruce Springsteen, Clive Davis, and believe it or not many more. I have learned many wonderful tips from these books. One of the tips was to start my own music publishing company. So I did. I am the proud owner of Muse Juice Magic Music Publishing. So I registered my company with ASCAP, to make sure the name was available. Designed my own business cards…
