I like to make soundtracks for all the stuff I’m working on.  Right now I’m on book three of the Soulguard series, the urban fantasy series that starts with Some Strange Magic.

Griffin and Voirey have an intense relationship that is impossible for them to pursue because of what they are.  That kind of star crossed love affair sparks some pretty strong emotions along the way.  And strong emotions always have great songs to go with them somewhere.  You just have to look.  And I’ve found some things that I love to listen to while I write.

If nothing else, you can click the links and it’ll give you something to listen to while you do your homework.  Some of these songs are pretty mellow because they’re easy to write with.

This isn’t all of them and I’ll be adding some more as time passes.
