You'll hear a little of everything on Tuesday afternoon; but Blues and Celtic are my musical cores.
Born & raised in Grand Rapids; graduated from Kalamazoo College; wrote my first book, married my first husband, and gave birth to my daughter in Key West. Came back to G.R. when my marriage hit the reef, drove a Zamboni for a while; then I married the best guy on the planet, Jay VerBurg. We were ridiculously happy for two years, then Jay got pancreatic cancer & had to go on ahead. I've been a widow for over three years now.
I make skirts out of up-cycled men's shirts (started with Jay's-he was a snappy dresser; he had a lot of nice shirts) & sell them in a couple of shops in G.R.
I'm also working on another book. Because, you know, a girl can never have too many rejection slips.
