It was the dream of signing a record deal that brought me to California in 1978. Healdsburg became my home. Country enough for my quiet side, yet close enough to San Francisco for that record deal.
After nine years of road trips, it was my last in 1981 that brought me back to my home town of Chisholm, Maine. Brenda Lee was home for Christmas and after all those years of just friends, we fell in love.
