About Me

I'm an Army wife and aspiring author, published by Evernight Publishing. I primarily write M/M, but I'm starting to branch out. I'm not very good at technology, but I'm hoping this blog gives me the opportunity to communicate with other authors and readers. My life is kept interesting by my soldier, Ringo the chihuahua, and all the amazing people that I consider friends. I also work entirely too much as a coach at a local gym, a caregiver at a church nursery, and a freelance baker.

Musical Monday 8/6

Today's song is totally different from anything else I've posted.

I've been feeling super nostalgic about music lately. I used to play clarinet and bass clarinet back in my school days. I miss it more than ever. I've even started looking for an instrument, that's how much I miss it.

This piece is so moving and it holds so many memories. An American Elegy was arranged by Frank Ticheli to commemorate the victims and survivors of the Columbine school shooting. We played this at a school concert on the 10th anniversary of the event. There's really nothing that compares to being a part of something like that. You feel so connected with your fellow band members. The music moved some of the audience to tears and after the last note sounded, there was a moment of silence that can't be described.

Alright, enough of my ramblings.
