Music as Inspiration

When I’m working on a new book, I try to find songs to use as inspiration. There’s something about making connections between my characters and music that really helps my creativity. For those of you that have read my books, I have put together a list of some of the songs that inspired those stories or that I have since found that reminded me of my books. It isn’t always the entire song–sometimes just bits and pieces. One line or two, just the chorus, etc. But I hope you enjoy listening to these songs! The bold ones are my favorites 🙂
