Playlist for Guitars and Cages

Music has always been a very big part of my life. I started off learning to sing in church choir when I was really young and then began lessons on the organ. Later, in middle school, I began to play the piano and by high school it was the guitar and bass guitar. There was always singing in my house, my grandmother sang while she cooked and I still do. You can time the process by the songs, or at least, that’s what she always said.

Needless to say, music has become a very big part of my writing as well. Not only are several of my characters musicians, but I can’t write without music going and each story seems to develop its own rather unique playlist that makes focus and flow so much smoother.

In anticipation for the upcoming release of Guitars and Cages, and to give me something to think about to avoid the nerves and anticipation of awaiting the book's release, I wanted to share the playlist I used while writing Guitars and Cages.
