About
To celebrate the New Millennium, I took a year off to write novels, plays, and songs--and I've been doing that ever since. At the end of my first year, I won first prize in the 2000 USA Songwriting Contest in the Lyric Category for my lyric 'Drum Machines and Beauty Queens.' This led to my co-writing songs with many excellent musicians.
