Sometimes finding that right piece of music to write to can unlock a door you didn’t even know was there. Usually when I find a perfect song I will loop it for days, weeks, even months while I write. It might seem a little kooky (at least my husband has told me so) but it works for me.

Here is some of the music that I listened to while writing The Memory Painter:
