HERE'S THE ALBUM!!! The unmastered digital versions of all of the songs on the new Stolen Season album (aka my jazzy snazzy love child aka that thing that’s eaten my brain and my life for the past umpteen months) are now available.  :)  I will be getting together my promo efforts over the next couple of weeks, working with my album design team and my mastering engineer for the actual CD release of this thing, and filming a release concert for you and for YouTube.   For now, here’s the basic, luscious, lovely audio, laid bare for your listening pleasure.  (That sounded a little naughty because it was.)

I'll be adding lyrics and trivia to the songs' pages a little bit at a time. And I'm serious about that YouTube thing- I'm gonna start filming that release concert video for youse guys this weekend if I can manage it! Gonna make this baby as interactive and viral as I can!

I hope you like what I’ve made. :D

#GLV  It's not perfect, but it's better than it's been, and that makes me more productive.

Story
Introduction
Former English major, psychiatric nurse, computer security specialist, and patient transfer coordinator for a major university hospital system. I'm a writer, a singer, and an aspiring musician in a few other areas, as well. I play games, do cross stitch, clay sculpt, and cook for fun.

I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome type III and a primary immunodeficiency, along with several associated medical disabilities, which makes my day-to-day life an unexpected adventure from one day to the next (sometimes one hour to the next).
