(aka: Where I Seek My Muse)
For those of you who've read my books, you know music plays a large part in my life. I reference it often in the Black Knights Inc. series. I quote it in my novels - when I'm legally allowed. And I rely on it to inspire my muse. So I'm often asked, "What songs do you listen to while you write?" The answer? ALL THE SONGS! I'm an equal-opportunity listener. Rock, Pop, Alternative, Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Classical, Jazz… You name it; I listen to it. But when I'm trying to get in the mood to write, I have a "go-to" playlist that inevitably helps me channel those badass biker boys. Today, I'm sharing it with you. Enjoy! I know I always do. ;-)
