Music and books

February 12, 2015

Here’s the link to my The Shifters part 1 book trailer – check it out! I had a lot of fun making it and it is office appropriate.


Let me know what you think! Good, bad, meh? Be honest!

I plan to do another trailer when all of Part 2 is published.


I often listen to music when I write and it’s often instrumental – but not just any instrumental. I love EPIC music!


I listened to the following groups a lot when I wrote “Hearts and Minds” and they are very inspiring, and I don’t have to focus on them, like I do if there are lyrics. They fade into the background but not all the way.


A couple of my favorites are: Two Steps from Hell, E.S. Posthumus, and Mary McLaughlin (piano, Irish).

Here are some links to my favorite albums on YouTube. (all work appropriate – you’re welcome)

Two Steps from Hell:

E.S. Posthumus:


My question to you is – What music do you listen to: to write, read, clean the bathroom, whatever? Fav artists, music groups, musicians…? I want to know!

    I especially love anything with heavy harmonies and guitars. Sloan’s my favorite band, and since all four guys write and sing (and have wildly different influences), they have a pretty varied repertoire. I also love Redd Kross, the Posies (especially their mid-’90s records), the Fleshtones…all sorts of things I’m blanking on right now!

    Nice! I love so many bands and solo-singers, I couldn’t list them all either.
