Connect with Gail
To sum myself up, I am a wife, mother, writer, and musician, and the order of those things will depend on what day it is. Friends tell me that I lead a busy life, and I suppose that’s probably true. But I enjoy everything I do, so I can’t stop any of it. Yet, for all the things I’m involved with, and even though I began my adventures of musicianship early at age eight, writing is my passion. I remember the first book I wrote, back in middle school – on a clackety old manual typewriter. It was uniquely based on a pre-teen girl named… Gail… and her three best friends, all of whom shared the same names as my own best friends. Despite dangers and unknown perils, we raced against time following cryptic clues to seek a precious treasure in a haunted mansion before the ghosts, police, and relatives of the deceased owner of the house caught and locked us in the damp, dreary cellar until we perished.
I can’t remember if we found the treasure, but I have to assume we did. After all, I’m here to tell about it. My writing has changed a lot since then (praise the lord!). These days, when I’m not writing I’m back to playing piano for my worship team at church, but I still play upright electric bass for the Golden Ears Jazz Band and acoustic double bass for a community orchestra. If I had more time, I’d love to learn the violin. So besides being a writer, I am also a band geek!
