What does music mean to you? What is your “go to” sounds? With all of the genres to choose from, a person can find something to brighten their moment. The soothing sounds of an orchestra or the uplifting lyrics of Christian can lift a somber mood, get someone through grief, or even give comfort to the sick. Country and love songs remind us of love gone bad – or good. The lyrics tell of dreams found, lovers lost. Rock and Pop can get those feet moving, get a body energized.
Music completes me. It is a part of what I am made of. Whether I am riding in my car, sitting outside enjoying the fresh air, or writing a scene in one of my books, music is in my soul. I love putting songs in my writing, letting my characters get lost in the sounds of instruments and allowing the lyrics to have meaning in their lives. I listen to everything from Classic, Christian, Pop, 80’s (of course!), Country, Jazz, and whatever else…
