Author & Composer

b ?USA 1958; a singer from early years, encouraged by her pastor-father she recorded a song album at the age of 4. When aged 7, her family moved to Springdale, Arkansas; she found the move difficult but found joy in the music her father taught her at the piano. She studied computer-programming at high school, but switched to a ‘chorus’ class and on graduation joined YWAM, touring and training with a music and drama team. In response to demand she then began recording professional albums, the first being ‘Knowin’ You’re Around’ in 1981; she has since received many awards for subsequent songs and recordings. After 15 years of marriage to Jack Wright she at last conceived, shortly before touring with the long-planned Christmas musical ‘Child of the Promise’ in which she took the role of Elizabeth.
