I usually just talk about my fiction writing, but whenever I need a break from wordsmithing, I’m behind the piano working on songs still in their infancy.

I’ve been a professional songwriter for many years now. I’ve written over 100 songs, with 10 songs released on albums by various recording artists. I’m a member of the The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, better known as ASCAP, one of the three Publishing Rights Organizations (PROs) all songwriters should register with. Check out my ASCAP songs by clicking here!

The first song I wrote ever released to the public was a song called Reminisce performed by Malyssa and it became a regional dance hit. It’s lifespan continued throughout the summer of 2002 and from there, I got a taste of what it was like to hear a song I wrote being played on the radio. You can listen to Reminisce by clicking here! After you take a listen, let me know what you think of it!

A song I co-wrote called “Here With You” by Malyssa became a global dance hit because of its European sound throughout the year of 2003. Most recently, it was licensed out to the TV series “The Glades” (A&E Network), as well as various other indie movies previous to this placement.

I usually don’t bring up my songwriting because I figure people will know about one of my songs if they heard it. And I’d much rather have the performer get all the accolades and I can focus on just writing. My friends say I should talk about my songwriting more, so hopefully this blog entry is the first step for me to be more open about not just my novels, but also about the songs I wrote that have hopefully made a difference in people’s lives.

I’ve listed a few of my songs on this blog. Feel free to take a listen and let me know what you think! All of the songs have been released, and I hope to add more songs to this blog in the future — as long as I feel they are worthy of the public’s ears.
