When true inspiration hits, do you simply walk away?

Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass…I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions…


Eight years ago I dreamed a dream (literally): a musical, about a vampire—who was a good guy! (Long before Stephanie Meyer, thank you.) I woke and scrambled to my piano (keyboard), fumbling in the early dawn with pen and paper to capture the song still echoing through my head. But that’s not where it ended. After a week I’d composed 10 songs. Music flooded into me through what felt like a conduit of light, and it’s all I could do to keep from drowning. Our lives became a whirlwind of midnight waking and crazy writing sessions.

Crazy. That’s the best word to describe it.


Matthew 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.


Well my friends, here’s the end product:

This is the first time since conception the musical has been available to anyone not sitting in our living room. The site features 6 of 34 musical numbers (with more music in the works), a story teaser, character descriptions, character blogs (this is where the real fun comes in), and the opportunity to get involved. In the coming months we will host contests (primarily writing contests), and other promotional events to spread the word…and the insanity.

Who knows how this will play out, but we (my creative parter/husband & I) are dead set on Broadway, and through our website you can join in the journey.


  1. I checked out your website! I am amazed by your talent!

  2. Sounds like a lot of fun. (I also just found out we have a mutual friend, Alicia Howse, with some other friends helping out as well.

    It must be so nice to see things coming together.

  3. Amazing story! I'd love to see this musical.

    You are truly talented.

  4. How exciting! I think I heard once that Stephanie Myers started out with a dream too. ;)

    Nice work!

  5. So glad to know I'm not the only writer who jumps out of bed in the middle of the night when inspiration strikes. When I'm really on a roll it can take me four or five tries before I finally get to bed (and stay there)! I'm excited to see what you've done!

    I'm also friends with Alicia and Amber, and I heard about your musical from Jennifer Wolfe who said she's doing some marketing stuff for you guys. If they're on board with it then I know it's got to be good! That's some serious talent there! Best of luck!!
