"I have 2 passions in my life. The love of horses and animals, and the love of music. "The Trail Less Traveled" and the newly released "Hoofbeats, Heartbeats & Wings" embraces them both. My two soul animals: my dear pug, Choy, and the colt I raised, Tonka, shared a birthday on May 16th. Choy was 15 years old and Tonka was 9 when their souls flew away together in August of 2000. Through my deep grief, little did I know that they would inspire a whole new chapter in my life. I began writing songs about them and other animal loves of my life. Death and rebirth, the circle of life....it is amazing and I continue to be grateful. They are now my angels, they're 'not really gone'. My hope is that hearing this music will inspire healing, joy and celebration of life."
