Play this:

Music has always been my muse when it comes to writing. Sometimes, I’ve created a playlist after the story is written. Sometimes, songs come to me organically. And sometimes, I build a list before much of the story is on paper. . . . which helps me along when it comes to plotting.

My newest story “Playing at Love” is about a high school choir teacher and the school’s new football coach. (Smexy, right?) After the initial “thunder-struck” attraction, these two people are sitting on opposite sides of an issue–which was really fun to write. 
Without giving tooooo much away, here are the songs that helped me write this fun little love story.
