January 31, 2020 (Dripping Springs, Texas): Needless to say, I'm not keeping up with all that's happening. In my defense, it would take a dedicated resource to have this page reflect what goes on around here on a day to day basis, so admittedly I have resigned myself to the occasional tidbit or three when I can.

For my friends who have asked about my recent music projects, there are two and both have Facebook pages: The Donna and Fredy project page is here: Donna Bailey and Fredy Argir and the Rio Rangers are here: The Rio Rangers . 

And there is going to be some interesting news announced here soon, so check back.

Secret Lives of Musicians

Secret Lives is the only novel I've published using a pen name. (My middle name is Emmett and my mother's middle name was Orlaine. Hence, Emmett Orlaine.)  But this is not a book about music. It's a collection of stories about musicians from different eras who find themselves in international, desperate, and often life-threatening situations and how they improvise and think on their feet to survive. It's a cultural time capsule, it's funny, and it's available for all eBook formats anywhere in the world—and only $4.99.
