First, what is a songline? A songline is also called a dreaming track and is within the animist belief system of Indigenous Australians. Songlines are paths marked across the land, sky, and Universe from those spirits before us. The paths of the songlines are recorded in traditional songs, stories, dance, and painting.
I found my first songline in a Jimmy Buffett novel. He described his songline and I knew I had to find and follow my own. I’ve spent most of my life trying to find and follow my songline. I’ve followed a lot of what I thought were wrong songlines, but in reality, they…it was always the right one, leading me to where I needed to be.
I am trying my best to send out positive Universal light, love, and magic to everyone I meet.

In Buddhism, you’re not suppose to say I am this or I am that because it resides with ego and the ego is something made up by the mind. My ego has made up its mind and it says I am a writer, a dreamer, a star gazer, and hula girl at heart.
I love music, hockey, stargazing and not wearing pants.
My writer ego: Right now, I’m writing my first Urban Fantasy novel. I’ve written quirky and sexy women’s fiction…Not quite romance. Not quite erotica. Not quite chic lit. I like exploring the minds of my characters and pushing their boundaries (like I do in my own life). As I push theirs, they push mine. Together, we explore the dark and cobwebbed corners of our minds. We may be frightened by what we find, but together, we’ll get out alive.
My dreamer and hula girl at heart ego: I believe one should always carry their passport with them because one never knows when an adventure just might come into their life. The Universe gives you answers, clues, and guides you where you need to go/be if you are open to hearing/listening/seeing it. I believe in the power of positivity and that you can manifest your own reality in pushing your boundaries and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
My star gazer ego: On 11/11/15, I left the US to chase my dream of relocating and expatriating to Australia. I’m still in this wonderful country of Australia. It has my heart and is my home. On 09/03/20, I became a permanent resident of Australia, my now forever home.
More info about me: I like my coffee black, my whiskey neat, my wine red (but I like white too).
My top 5 favorite artists in alphabetical order are David Bowie, Editors, Jimmy Buffett, Rammstein, and U2.
I cheer for the Charlotte Checkers (AHL), Detroit Red Wings (NHL) and New York Rangers (NHL).
I like movies to be cerebral, action packed or laugh out loud comedies.
My favorite television shows are Doctor Who, Parks and Recreation and The X-Files.
My favorite colors are purple and gray and yet, I keep finding everything I do in TARDIS blue.
I wish upon the stars every night and I dream big, ask for the galaxy, and hope to catch a falling star.
