Topaz Winters is a fourteen year old singer/songwriter and author. When she is not staying up until four AM on a steady diet of coffee and cheesecake, writing her heart out, she can be found exploring musical frontiers with her eccentric collection of band mates or playing with her Japanese Spitz puppy, Hachii. Topaz’s debut novel, Frozen Hearts, drops in January of 2014, and her debut album, Falling Star, later on in the same year. Topaz does not yet know her path in life, but she is stopping to smell the roses on the way.
