FAWM 2017

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.

Cheers, Mark

FAWM 2016

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 All 41 original songs are also on my website:

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.

Cheers, Mark

    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!
