I love music. I can't write without it. Music is a huge part of my process. I have playlists for all of my books--in fact, if I hear a song from a playlist, it immediately takes me to that book and to those characters. It's magic.

In case you're curious, here are my playlists for my published books. Check back when new ones come out to find out what songs inspired those books, too!
