The House of Wolves series  Soundtracks

All artists have a process. Mine starts and ends with music. It is essential for me, there is not a word written without a melody. I’ve seen some of the other writers I call friends and follow post playlists for their books. Guess I’m not the only one music speaks to. I like the idea. Not only when I write does it add dimension to the pages. But listening to the author’s music choices as I read their words gets me one step closer to their vision. So, with that in mind, I thought I would share with you my book soundtracks. If you think a song works for a character, by all means, send it along. I’m always looking for new music.

I blogged about this subject. If you’re interested in the long winded version follow this link.
