Ok, ok, you've asked and I'm here to answer. How can I write and illustrate a children's book AND write and perform adult themed music in bars? Well folks, I am, no doubt, a multi-faceted woman. I love to perform and to make people laugh - comedy will always be an important part of my life. However, I am an Aunt to two wonderful kids and I've always felt like in many ways I relate to children more than adults (probably because I act like one).
I'd love for people of all ages to enjoy one of my musical performances. This is why I've made sure to book both "family friendly" and "Adult only" shows. I've listed all my performances as such on my website and Facebook page. I've also labeled all of my songs on streaming services with an "E" for explicit so you won't accidentally play them for your kids. My YouTube videos also have the same "Explicit" warnings on videos inappropriate for the kiddos.
Check out my first children's book "Fred the Tree" at and make sure to download the song that inspired the book "7 Mile Fred" on iTunes. I'll be donating a portion of every book sold to the Turtle Hospital in Marathon.
But wait, there's more! I've recently started a clothing line! I love my winters in the Florida Keys and wanted to create a brand that illustrates life in Southern Florida using vintage-style pinup girls. My designer, Loni Carr at Whiskey Ginger Studios, helped me illustrate several of my songs with cool island gear and apparel. Check out 42 Bridges Apparel at www.42Bridges.com.
Looking forward to meeting each and every one of you at a show, book signing or at one of my tents at local farmer's markets and festivals. Thanks for stopping in and feel free to stream my music on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon (just don't play any of those songs marked "E" for "explicit" if your kiddos are in the car.)
