Primed and Ready

I am ready to begin the Caring and Kindness 40 day challenge!  My planning calendar is almost full; only a few more dates to fill-in. I can’t wait to see what others are doing and hope I get some new ideas. Join me in showing caring and kindness to others.


It’s not too late to Register.

Thank you to everyone who listens to my music on Reverbnation and N1Music.

The past few months have been very busy.  I have published the second addition of my first children’s book and written a second.  Both are inspired by and written for my grandchildren.  Some of the best stories come from real life.  And we all know how entertaining young children can be.  They are generally the center of attention whenever they are in the room.  I love my grands.

The Personal Side


I’m so glad you dropped by.

I am Patricia Franklin.

A few years ago, I decided it was time to take my music to a new level.  I’d been singing cover songs, written by other artists, at weddings, retirements, and in concert, but felt I needed something that was mine.  So, I began writing my own songs.

I currently serve as coordinator of the North Carolina Songwriters Co-Op (NCSC), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the support and promotion of songwriters in the state of North Carolina.

Find out more about my music and listen at Reverb Nation.

As a Special Educator, I use music and art to grab the attention of students, introduce them to new concepts, and to provide a format for expression.  I often write personalized stories to illustrate various literary skills.  Click on the “Author” tab above to see the book I wrote for my grandchildren.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you’ll come back often.
