A Song for Every Book
After living with my characters for so many months, I begin to hear the songs they sing.  I've written each song with vocal lyrics and piano accompaniment for you to enjoy.  If you go to my website at you can download a free pdf.  I'd love to hear from you.  If you've tried performing them, please tell me all about it.
