I love music. I listen to it pretty much every minute I’m awake. There is always a radio playing somewhere in my house. I have pretty eclectic taste as well so you’re going to find a lot of different stuff mixed together here. I’ve made a few play lists for my series work because people have expressed interest in it. I have often used song titles to name my work so I think people are pretty good at guessing what I was listening to when I wrote a certain story. These playlists may or may not work for you depending on what country you are in. I have ZERO control over that front. I should point out that some of this stuff is so cracky that I should be very ashamed of myself–yet somehow I’m not.

What Might Have Been

Ties That Bind

Tangled Destinies


  1. I can’t listen to them because of licencing restrictions. ๐Ÿ™

  2. What a fabulous idea. Just listened to the WMHB playlist — a great way to think about how the songs connect to the stories. And some new artists for me to explore. Thank you!

    But no “Ring of Fire” — maybe that story/novel will have its own playlist? And whose version of the song will you use? (This is where I out myself as an Adam Lambert fan. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Plus, I totally need to listen to some Johnny Cash today. It’s that kind of day.


    • Ring of Fire would definitely have it’s own playlist- it’s not nearly as romantic or soft as the rest of that series which is why I decided to cut WMHB off there and start do the final part of the series as a Novel.

  3. Longer? I’ve not heard that song in *years*…. time to go dig out my Dan Fogelberg LP’s.

  4. Love this you so rock when ever I’m reading stories I love listening to music and so far I love your playlist they go so well with your stories.

  5. These are great! Scads of awesome songs – queen/bowie (which I still remember vanilla ice trying to play off stealing their riff…what a dummy – like nobody would notice…), coldplay, mr. groban, boy george, phil collins (which I’ve got stuck in my head now)…heck I could go on all day! thanks for taking the time to post this (amidst all the awesome writing you post!)

    P.S. – Congratulations on your 1,000,000th word! (You deserve a vacation filled with lovely cabana boys and beach scenery!)

    Btw – like the new site layout. ๐Ÿ™‚

    just thought id let you know that some of your song links are broken. i enjoyed them when they were working…LOL……

  7. Tangled Destinies has a great play list, especially Leona Lewis.

    Whenever I read(or re-read) the series, the song that always comes my mind is Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You by Lauryn Hill. An AWESOME song.

  8. I’ve been enjoying your stories for a while now. Especially “Ties That Bind”. But I really love your play lists. The music goes so well with the stories. I listen to one of the songs and I can see in my mind what happens in your stories (hope that was explained understandable). Really enjoy the music. Thumbs up ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Have you ever heard of the band called Hurts? I recently started listening to them, and their song “Silver Lining” brings to mind Tangled Destinies for me. Here’s a link if you want to check it out:

    Their other songs are pretty good too.

  10. The playlists are gone…..

  11. LOVE your playlists! We have very similar tastes in music ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I can’t seem to access the playlist… TT.TT
    have you thought of creating a zip file and allowing the fanmix to be downloaded? ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. This is weird, the playlists are saying page not found…

  14. More Than a Pint

    Sorry to bother, but is it possible to have a written list of your playlist for Tangled Destiny? On it says it is only available in the US and on Youtube I only found the one on “Ties That Bind”. Anyway I will understand whatever you’ll decide.
