It’s fair to say that I’m a woman who has never fancied things that slam shut.

In my ideal world, Dreams and Love and Imagination and Music live beyond boxes and limits, borders and confines. This CD is a collection of songs I’ve written reflecting

several styles of music I enjoy, and affirms my love of all things “flung wide open.”

Thanks… first to Dik Shopteau who helped lay the foundation for this record. To Brian C. Peters, guitar and pedal steel guru and “Scooter” Nelson on drums. Big thanks to Joe Savage, Dan Chouinard, Arkadiy Yushin, Tommy Lieberman, Pat Frederick and Mark Henderson…all of you brought your own personal somethin’ to the sessions.

To my daughters Claire and Laura for slipping into the studio at Christmas to record back-up vocals; love you! I’m always grateful for the support of my parents and family, all of my friends, and the divine Fab 4!  I’m dedicating this album to my husband Steve, who has been so supportive, kicked my butt to get this project going, handled the occasional melt down and pushed me to give him “one more time through!”


Steve would like to thank Doug Dixon, Geoff Walsh, Karen Quale and Jim Schnobrich.
