Janet Walker not only writes fictional prose. As the product of a music-loving family, she also sings and creates melodies and lyrics--with one big difference: While her fiction is for adults only, most of her songs are for children.
...But not the first song that follows. Its sophisticated harmony, a tune borrowed from another songwriter, might appeal more to adults, but we use it here to demonstrate Ms. Walker's ability to sing.
"Whenever I construct anything for children, I shut off the side of my brain that writes my stories--the adult muse.
I am a firm advocate of protecting the innocence of youth. I was able to grow up with that precious protection, and I believe all children should have the same blessed opportunity." -- J. Walker
The following two 50-states videos together have received more than 140,000 authentic YouTube views!
"In all of these videos*, my voice is the only one you hear--even when you hear two or three voices. I used my phone and laptop recorders to make the double and triple recordings--and in the "Boyfriend, Best Friend" video, in part two of the video, I even try to imitate musical instruments." -- JW
