Vocal Range of Characters:
I write stories about the lives of myself, my friends, and people I read about in various media formats. People's lives sing to me, and I set them down on paper. That, to me, is real life. I am always delighted and amazed by how people from many different walks of life seem to identify with my music. It just proves to me that though we may live thousands of miles apart, our hearts and souls are very much the same.
Written By: Amanda McBroom
Sorrow is a color in everyone's rainbow. Stronger in some than others. Necessary to all. I feel music, in almost any form, is one of the great healing powers on the planet...at the most cellular level. I am honored if some of my music touches and lightens anyone's heart.
How do I explain my success? Luck, of course. And, I guess, the ability to exchange feelings with others in a simple, clear way. Someone told me I let people know we all feel the same way about certain things, and there is great comfort in knowing you are not alone.

Annie - A nice, attractive middle-class woman facing the crisis of her fortieth birthday. She's energetic, smart, relatively happy, and stuck in a marriage that's grinding to a halt.
Steve - Annie's husband, a nice, attractive, totally masculine blue-collar American male in his forties, who is being dragged into a marital crisis he never saw coming.
Woman #1 - Twenty-ish, she plays Annie as a young woman; Jennifer, Annie's daughter, and others.
Woman #2 - She plays Annie's best friend; a salty, no-nonsense, sexy woman from Texas with a good sense of humor, and others.
Man #1 - Twenty-ish, he plays Steve as a young man, and others.
Man #2 - In his late twenties and quite handsome, he plays Annie's son Jeff, the Waiter, and others.
Most of HEARBEATS takes place in Annie and Steve's home - a pleasant, middle class house somewhere on the outskirts of a Mid-Western town. The remaining locations can be suggested by bits of furniture and appliances.
