Music sets the mood while I’m writing. It influences the story and helps me bring my characters to life. Here are playlists of the songs that inspired me as I wrote my books.

"I’m gripping the steering wheel and staring unseeing at the dashboard, steeling myself. A melancholy Mumford & Sons song is playing on the stereo, the lyrics about love and sadness and death. It fits my mood exactly."

• White Wedding by Whip (Spotify | YouTube)
• All Over Now by Eric Hutchinson (Spotify | YouTube)
• Everybody by Ingrid Michaelson (Spotify | YouTube)
• Kiss by Prince (Spotify | YouTube)

The song ends and another one begins with a funky and familiar guitar riff, followed by a fast and peppy beat, and then comes Prince’s unmistakable falsetto singing the first lines of “Kiss.” This has to be a joke. My chest heavy and heaving, I try not to let it affect me, the sexy rhythm that’s begging me move my hips, to bump and grind.
