Influences: Jimmy Buffet is one of only 8 authors to become number 1 on the New York Times Best Seller List for BOTH Fiction and Non-Fiction.
This is going to be a relaxed year for me. I don't have any special goals or projects in the works, so I hope to be able to listen in to my fav FAWMers, and maybe meet some new ones. As a writer, my contribution has always been lyrics. If you need words for your music, let me know, as I am switching gears from creating companion songs for my prose (essays, short stories, novels, and memoir), to helping others on your projects.
Welcome FAWM friends. I think this is my 7th or 8th year (Debs will let me know for sure, she counts better than I do). I do know this is my second Leap FAWM. Onward to 14 ½!
Thanks to so many of you who brought the 41 original companion songs to life for my memoir: 13,760 Feet—My Personal Hole in the Sky. That 348-page book is out on Amazon in print and Kindle formats, and the 15-hour audiobook (with snippets from the companion songs infused into the story) is available on Audible.com. All 41 original songs are also on my website: http://marklberry.com/memoir/
This year I am collaborating on songs to accompany my upcoming articles in Airways magazine. I usually tie my lyrics into some form of short story, essay, or article when I can.
I also plan to listen to the FAWM jukebox well past February, so be sure to mark your favorites so I can find them.

Hi Mark, Happy February!
hehe your norwegian is getting better every FAWM Mark! I need to teach you the special letter "å" ... it's a clever little letter that pretends to be a standard "a", but was killed in a freak accident involving the letter "K" and is now an angel... (hence the halo). So, the correct spelling is "Skål"!
tl;dr : have a great FAWM!
Hi Mark, I'm hopeful 😀 Good to see you as always.
thanks! and cheers back at ya! all the best for 2017!
Heyu, Mark. Great to see you here.
May the rawk fly you excellent places this year, good sir.
Should be another fun FAWM!! Looking forward to seeing what you bring...
