From growing up and working in England, right through to emigrating to the US, marriage, divorce and our last shared days together.Music was my inspiration. Whenever I heard a song, or a piece of music, that reminded me of something or someone, or of the events of that day, I would write the story behind the song.Through three years of hurt, hope, love lost and love found, surgery and autism, I wrote those stories.

Ultimately, despite it all, my son and I became closer as a result.Thats all I need for a good life.
