Bad Dog Bio
Born in Detroit, singer-songwriter, gay girl, writer, blah blah blah…let’s get to the good part…waitressing at the only women’s bar in the city! Now THAT’s what I called fun!
For every girl who wanted to make out with her girlfriend – there was a cop waiting to bust them. So the only place to go was …the Casbah.
There the cops were paid off; there other women “like yourself” could be found; and there is where life began for this writer. My stories? All lead back to the people I met, served and partied with at the infamous and forever immortalized…Casbah.
Oh yeah. There was an Emmy award for writing music for television, a Golden Reel award for music editing, and some scripts optioned, a TV series sold, but the juice is in the goose. That other stuff you can look up anywhere.
Oh all right! Here it is…
