Confessions

I’ve always been rebellious; a warrior.

Maybe it started when I entered this world feet first. Or when I tried walking despite the hip deformity I was born with. It didn’t stop me; I’d just drag myself everywhere (fortunately the surgery was a success, it could’ve gotten even weirder without it).

I didn’t want to be told…


9 Songwriting Quirks…my process.

 

I write every day. I’ve been writing songs for a very long time; my first real song when I was 9. After years of studying songwriting (I still consider myself a student), honing the craft, suffering through a self-imposed writer’s block for over a year, hundreds of drained pens, and hundreds of thousands of words,…


6 Lessons from Puppies

I really didn’t want a puppy. I wasn’t ready yet. It had been two months since we lost Rayven and just the thought of training and teething and chewing was more unappealing than I could imagine.

The compromise: we’d find a rescue Doberman a few years old.

We applied again and again and were turned down, which…


Write or Die

I’ve been writing since I was able to form words. I was taught to put pen to paper, using actual words at four years old and haven’t looked back.

I never knew it would save my life.

We’ve all had traumas… we’ve all lived through the depths of despair, disappointment, triumphs, amazing things and the elation of happiness.

I…


Being Paul Stanley

In honor of The Kiss Front Man’s Birthday, I’d like to say a few words.

When Peter Criss, Kiss’ original drummer left the band, I was devastated.  The Cat man was my favorite. He had this raspy singing voice, and of course, Beth was the ultimate love song.

I had this huge-assed crush on him. I collected posters and…

Missing Blogs from Myspace COMING SOON

Yep, Myspace has done it again. They lost all my blogs. I am waiting for them to get it sorted out. You will be able to read all the blogs I posted before Aug 2012 very soon…one way or another. So sorry about that. Please check back.


Mind Games: 7 Tips for motivation when you just don’t wanna!

Being an independent artist, I know a thing or two about keeping up motivation and squandering time. I’m good at both; I’m a Pisces. Especially during the winter months when I am a full time musician and have to only answer to myself.

I don’t like following schedules, I don’t like to do lists, and I don’t…


Hey Jude: Q&A – Ten Questions for my Homeopath

Homeopathy saved my life. I know it sounds dramatic, but it’s true.

I was left with a health legacy that I won’t get into here, but suffice it to say, that if I hadn’t found homeopathy you probably wouldn’t be reading this.
I first went to visit Homeopath Jude Corfield for a different reason. My grandfather…
