Music to Soothe and Inspire

Wow! It’s Saturday again. Time to introduce another Trinity Writers Workshop member.

This time it is our resident song-writer, Janice Nourse.

Jan also writes children’s books but lately she has been concentrating her creativity energy on writing and performing songs.

Following is Jan’s autobiography:

As a member of the writer’s group at Bedford Boys Ranch since 1981, I’ve tried my hand at nearly all the genres.  I’ve published poetry, a romance novella, nonfiction articles in local papers and magazines, and a column “Counselor’s Corner”.   Juvenile fiction sparked my creative spirit with short stories and books, some winning contests and others published. 

 My current love is combining my passion for music with my love of writing.  Having received a Goya guitar at fifteen, I entered those memorable flower-child years equipped to sing along with Peter, Paul, and Mary and Dylan.  A part of me never left.  

 My band, The Sonshine Sisters, adds mountain dulcimers, a yuke, and harmony to my songs, and we’ve performed them on stage at a number of festivals, including Bennington, Oklahoma and Glenrose, Texas.  Our goal is to put together a CD of all my original songs.  But if you want to hear a sample, you can find us jamming in the antique shop on Main Street in Whitesboro, Texas every Wednesday afternoon.
