Life's A Cappella.....the song that life sings for us, it changes day by day,as circumstances change. How we react to life and those circumstancesdepends on the music that we fill our life with. Whether it be a loveballad, or a dark song of heart ache and depression. Erin lived by thenotes of different songs, letting the music flow freely through herveins enveloping her to live like a free-spirited phoenix. Although heryoung life had been scarred of turmoil and heartache, she refused to let that define who she is today, as she lived each day to the fullest,paving a new road in her new life. She had erased her past. She had newfriends that she loved, and cherished, and was slowly beginning to fallin love. The record skipped and the song changed as did Erin's life,dramatically.

About the Author
I’m a Hispanic living in South Florida with my redneck husband from Texas and our “half breed” son, who is actually the reason I started writing again after years of celibacy. My son loves stories, but not the kind you can read in an existing book. No, he’d rather make up a story, complete with our own illustrations. So, thank you, Son, for igniting a flame I had let go out. I also live with two dogs: a neurotic Border Collie we call Nitro and a midget Rottweiler named Nisa. I have always found my sanctuary at the beach and in music and writing. I wish I could write rhymes so I could become a famous rapper, but rhyming is completely lost on me. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and a Master’s in Human Resource Management. I have held several jobs, from picking up dog crap to upper management positions. And now I am hoping to leave the business world behind so I can live full time in a world that does not exist until I place my fingers on a keyboard and bring them to fruition.
