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!

Secrets of the National Parks

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!
