Hello my friends old and new! I'm a multi-platinum Grammy nominated songwriter who is best known for my #1 hits "What a Girl Wants" and "Come On Over Baby". I earned a Grammy nomination for the song "Bitch" recorded by Meredith Brooks and have had hundreds of songs placed on albums, and in TV and film.
My book Confessions of a Serial Songwriterlead to a second GRAMMY nomination for Best Spoken Word Album. The memoire chronicles my journey from a young girl falling under the spell of magical songs to writing hits of my own. I write about coming of age, the creative process, the highs and the lows, the conflicts that arise between motherhood and career success, the divas the egos and the back stabbers, but mostly the lovely people I found along the way.
My Serial Songwriter Facebook page has become a forum for all things songwriting and ideas about navigating a changing music business as a creative person and parent.
I'm a music industry mentor, panelist, consultant, guest speaker and a fierce advocate of creators' rights as a founding member of SONA (Songwriters Of North America).
