Playlist for Sirens, Rising Tide

Check out this playlist if you have read, or are reading, Sirens, Rising Tide, or if you just want a damn good playlist to listen to. (Full disclosure: my husband helped me whittle this down and will have it known that he forbid Mumford & Sons to be on this. I love to disobey him.)

I never sit down to write without knowing exactly what scene I want to put down. The creative process in my mind mainly takes place during mundane moments of my days like driving, running (when I do it), or staring out the window. But the best ideas come to me while I am listening to music. Each of these songs have moved me to think of  my characters and dream up their experiences, the places they eat dinner, the set up of their apartments, in some cases their torture. Forgive me Mello.

The future screen director of Sirens can thank me for creating the soundtrack in advance.
