New Project: FAINTING GOATS BAND
Our first single, which I wrote, is titled Masquerade Girl.
QUESTION: What’s the song “Masquerade” about?
ANSWER: I wrote the love song about the many masks we wear, before the pandemic! Now it’s even more relatable. Andrew Heringer, of Milo Greene and The Guest and the Host swoons lead vocals and Dawson Records produced.

Fainting Goats second single, “Party-Party” is quite a departure from the whimsical yearning of “Masquerade”. First off, it’s co-written by me and my 17 y/o son Ethan! We made it up one day in our kitchen while we were goofing off during quarantine. It’s inspired by all the hours sitting in front of Zoom wishing we could be out partying with our friends. Ethan wrote the rap and sings the whole song. Can you relate? LOL

QUESTION: I want to read your books. Which do you recommend checking out first?
ANSWER: It depends on your interest and moods. If you want light, fluffy and flirty, download NOT OKAY, CUPID. For travel adventure and hot romance try the SEA series WHERE I FOUND YOU and its sequel WHERE THE SEA TAKES ME. For a departure, try PAINT MY BODY RED, my darkest, sexist and saddest book, is also my favorite. Featuring Paige and cowboy Jake, it’s set in the high-pressure Silicon Valley as well as a rustic ranch in Jackson Hole. All of my novels are about the importance of family, community and believing in oneself. Hope you enjoy!
