Praise for The Song Spinner novel:
“I have been feeling so fed by “Song Spinner” and the many beautiful songs on your CD. You are a richly creative and gifted woman. A number of your songs spoke to my heart so very deeply I found myself in tears. They capture the pain and grief and beauty and sometimes the confusion and disorientation of the times we are living through.” Cynthia Flowers, Port Townsend
“I bought a copy of “The Song Spinner” and put it away for a time when my granddaughter was old enough to read it with me. Well, that time has come, and we are finding it delightful. We get together on Skype every week and read a chapter or two. Her name is Magnolia, she is 8, and loves to sing, dance, and play the piano. She is enthralled with the story, as am I. Many thanks for bringing Aurora, Zantalalia and the importance of sound and music to the world of little people and their grandmothers!” Wendy, Salt Spring Island
