Inspiration

I am a musician. I’ve spent countless hours of my life learning how to play an instrument or sing an aria. So it stands to reason that music would be a huge source of inspiration in my life. As I write, each book has a sound track. The songs morph as the body of the book changes but there are those few songs that hold fast and always connect me to my characters. I thought I’d share a few of them here with you.

Restoration is a story of lost love and the unbelievable circumstances that lead to finding it again. I listened to a lot of Sara Bareilles while writing, but two of her songs really spoke to me.

“I Choose You” & “Gravity”  were huge inspirations for me. Any time I needed to refocus on the drive and motivation for my two characters these songs helped me get there.

Ben Folds also served up a heaping portion of inspiring lyrics with “The Luckiest” & “Landed”.

So there you have it, just a few of the many songs that still make me smile and take me back to my Grace and Drew.
