Confession of the Broken: A Codependent Rock Chick's Journey from Hopelessness to Healing
During my journey of healing from the family disease of addiction and codependency, I wrote a 5-song blues/rock/gospel album and a book. This project is my story of recovery, reconciliation—with myself and my alcoholic father—and redemption of every broken part of my life into something beautiful.
The ebook is a multimedia experience: it includes links to all five songs on the companion album and a full-length storyteller event. If you or a loved one are on the road to recovery, or if you hope to be one day, I hope you'll check it out. Click HERE to find the ebook on Amazon.

Other originals include Noel, a rockin', bluesy Christmas song, and Send Me, a song used to benefit World Vision.
Covers include a diverse selection of classics and remixed favorites like People Get Ready by Curtis Mayfield, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and Wicked Game by Chris Isaak. Check 'em out on YouTube, below, on Spotify, or your favorite platform.
