A Note from Elizabeth

I have been a songwriter since I was 13 years old – longer than I have been a wife, a mom or a person in recovery and longer than any other work I have done.

Songwriting is my passion and where I have found my purpose. I, like most writers, write about what I know and hope to tap into universal truths that touch the hearts and minds of others.  Although I’ve written many songs, most are about addiction, recovery, emotional growth, life challenges and spiritual healing.

As a person in long term recovery from addiction, I am interested in support, solutions, treatment and education on this and related topics. My support of treatment and education initiatives should not be misinterpreted as being “against” any one group or industry. Instead, it should be known that I am “Pro Solution” for those who need and want help with addiction problems. I support health and education regarding these issues. I am also a strong believer in personal and corporate responsibility.

I am not an expert in any medical field but instead an artist and writer expressing my personal experience, creativity and compassion.
