Welcome to the music room! Here’s where I compile the “official” playlists for all my books These playlists are made up of songs I listened to while I wrote the book, songs I consider the “theme song” of certain characters, and songs that would totally be on the soundtrack if my books are ever made into movies. Enjoy!

Sadly, I wrote these books long enough ago that I didn’t really keep track of what music I was listening to (or at least, I can’t find where I wrote it down). So these books don’t currently have playlists. I will add songs as I find/rediscover them.
If you have any songs you think fit the series, send them to me!
