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 competition and of course, 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).
