Character Interview: Miri Katz

Posted: December 7, 2017 in Uncategorized

Hey! Welcome to the first in a number of character interviews this month. To celebrate the release of Londonium, book 4 of the P.A.W.S. series, Travis got the opportunity to speak with with the main character herself.

The redhead had gotten a few odd looks as he approached a cafe in Jerusalem. He’d never been to the area before (and had hitched a ride with his girlfriend, her sister, and his aunt; they had a target in the region). As for Travis, he had an interview to conduct.

 

He remembered the first of these he’d done, with one particular member of P.A.W.S. And now he was looking to speak with Miri. Though he hoped that he hadn’t chosen a bad time for this. Ah, well. The half-monkey would worry about that later, as he looked around for the girl in question. He wasn’t sure if she’d be in human form or feline, but was ready to ask her some questions either way.

 

The half-monkey scanned the area for a bit, before eventually finding someone that seemed to fit the description of his interviewee for today. His tail twitched as he approached.

 

“Hey. Miri Katz, right?” he asked.

 

“Yep, that’s me,” said Miri nodding to Travis. “Why don’t you sit down?”

 

He sat down across from her, moving his hair aside to keep from sitting on it.

 

“So first off, thanks for agreeing to take the time to talk to me. Name’s Travis, and I just wanted to ask you a few things.”

 

“Sure, go ahead. Happy to answer your questions if I can.” She smiled at Travis.

 

“Okay, so, right off the bat…how did you become a shifter? Like, if you don’t mind my asking,” he asked.

 

Miri took a deep breath. “Well, it started when my Omama gave me this silver cat charm the night before she died. I didn’t know at the time but it contained magic that had originally saved her from the Nazis. Her mother had passed it on to her just as the family was being taken from their home in Vienna and that’s when my Omama first turned feline.

“I didn’t become a cat shifter until a few years after I got the charm from my Omama. After she’d died I was sent to this fancy boarding school by my aunt and uncle and the kids there bullied me. One day they chased me up into a tree and it was then that I first changed into my cat form. Later I met Josh (here’s a werewolf and my friend) and he took me to P.A.W.S.”

 

Nodding somewhat, he moved on to the next one. “What do you like to do in your downtime?”

 

“I love to read and write, especially fantasy. Writing down stuff helps me think and sort out all the weirdness that goes on around me. And believe me there’s a lot of weirdness.”

 

“Okay, so, I know you’ve made a lot of friends since you joined P.A.W.S.” He paused. “Wow…that probably made me sound like a creeper. Sorry about that. But anyway… Who are some of your closest?”

 

“Well, back at P.A.W.S. as I mentioned there’s Josh (he was my first friend who brought me to P.A.W.S.), then there are Sandy and Sean from Texas – they’re shapeshifter horses and then there’s Joey, the kangaroo animagus from Australia. I kind of miss them at the moment. Oh and I miss Danny too …” Miri sighed and looked away collecting her thoughts. “He’s my boyfriend, an animagus cat like me. I hope I get to see him again soon.”

 

The monkey-man tapped his pencil on the table. “Next, next…AH, right. So, what can you tell anyone reading this about the next adventure you’re involved in?”

 

“Well I hear the next book’s called “Londinium” and I get to visit the P.A.W.S. Institute in London. I’ve always wanted to visit London. I hope get to see some of the sights.”

 

Travis listened, his tail twitching a bit. “Wow. Hope that works out for you! Next up: what are your goals for the future? Like, aside from what’s already come up in response to the last one.”

 

“Well, I want to go back to St. Louis and see all my friends at P.A.W.S. and I suppose I should finish my studies too with Professor Ainsworth (he’s an animagus owl). When I’m done I’d like to travel. Danny has said that maybe we can go together. I’d love to visit the other P.A.W.S. Institutes dotted around the globe. I hear in the P.A.W.S. Institute in Africa there’s a magician who can turn himself into an elephant. That must be amazing to see.”

 

“So, let’s go with this one: is there anything you regret? Like, anything you would redo in a freaking heartbeat if you could?” he asked.

 

Miri paused and looked down into her lap. When she looked up again, Travis could see traces of tears in the corners of her eyes. “I wish I’d got to say goodbye to Jenny. She was my best friend as a kid in the Lower East Side in New York. When my aunt Cynthia took me away from there after my Omama died she didn’t allow me to say goodbye to my friend. She also sent our cats, Kitty and Susie out onto the street. I wish I knew what happened to them.”

 

He nodded somewhat. “Damn, that’s rough… Hope you’re able to get some closure eventually. Now for my next question…what is your favorite thing about being a shifter?”

 

“As a cat shifter I can blend in really well with my surroundings. No one really notices cats – especially here in Jerusalem.”

 

“Last one, I promise…do you have any advice for anyone reading this?” Travis asked, his head tilting somewhat.

 

“Appreciate what you’ve got. You never know when it will be pulled away from you.”

 

The half-monkey stood up once the interview was done, offering Miri a hug. Miri returned the hug. His tail twitched slightly and he stepped back after a bit.

 

“Thanks for agreeing to meet with me, Miri. Hope this all goes well for you, and next time you’re in St. Louis, can you tell Ian I said hi?” he said. “Thanks again!”

 

“Sure – Ian told me all about you. Says you’re to come visit again sometime.”

An Update!

Posted: December 3, 2017 in Uncategorized

So, what’s been going on on this end? A LOT of projects. I’ve figured out my Christmas list…as in the projects I intend to have done by Christmas. Also, starting on Thursday this week and going for several days, there will be more character interviews! One will be a group interview for an upcoming release (final Legends of Windemere book), one for the next P.A.W.S. release, one with a detective that’s actually interviewed both Travis and Spencer once, and a handful of them for the release of an anthology I’m involved in.

The tentative release date for this anthology has changed a few times, but now there are sights set on DECEMBER 12th for its official release. The anthology’s name? A Twist of Fate: A Collection of 11 Twisted Fairy Tales.

While I still need to touch base with some of the authors involved, and have tweaks to make on a few of the completed interviews, I figured it might be fun to have Travis interview at least one person from each of the stories involved. Also, a story that I wrote is in this thing. I wrote my own take on Rapunzel.

Blurb: When a rock star finally pushes his girlfriend/main songwriter too far, he finds himself cursed with a monstrous mane of hair. To stop the carnage brought on by his hair, he seeks help; what he finds is a pair of comic-book nerds that may have the key to reversing his curse.

RampagePromo

Other things I intend to have finished by Christmas, aside from the slew of interviews: a bunch of reading, the rest of my Inktober (and Kinktober) pieces, prizes for giveaways I’ve done during takeovers on Facebook, a bunch of character pics for others, this DeathTrav comic, the Major Arcana with my characters, and last but not least…

Book 6. It’s still being inked and took a backseat to NaNo (which I got mostly finished over the span of a few days…it took some semi-incoherent rants, at least one completely incoherent one, and the quoting of song lyrics..but I got it!). But I have some ASS TO KICK!

What’s Been Going On

Posted: November 4, 2017 in Uncategorized

So, it’s been a while since my last post. I haven’t quit the Inktober pieces, for one thing. Those were just put on hold because of the 50 or so other things I’ve got going on. I’ve been: working on book 6, working on other art pieces, getting more character interviews lined up, doing author takeovers on Facebook.

But thanks to doing those, I had the thought of creating updated character profiles for the major players of Hell Bent, complete with the fonts I’d use for their POVs. I made these months ago, but now’s as good a time as any, I think.

Also, screenshots from book 6!

Recently, Travis had gotten the opportunity to speak with Lily Luchesi‘s character Angelica Cross, from the Paranormal Detectives series.

As he entered Crowley’s, Travis held back a chuckle. He was starting to think he’d visited more bars than his girlfriend by this point. But he was here to learn about people, as opposed to drinking. The half-monkey was looking for one person in particular. A vampire, in this case. Though with a paranormal bar, he couldn’t just outright ask for someone to point out the vampire; might not narrow it down. He’d pulled his long red hair into a braid for today, wanting to avoid tripping over it. Okay…a sort of curvy and pale woman with long black hair…that’s who he was here for. And as soon as he saw someone fitting that description, he headed over to her.

“Hey…is your name Angelica, by any chance?” he asked as he approached.

She turned towards him, dark eyes assessing. Just what WAS this thing, and should she be killing him? No, he didn’t seem like an outward threat; the werewolf guards at the door would never have let him in,
“Let’s say it is, who the Hell are you?” she asked.
His tail twitched slightly. “Name’s Travis, and I was wondering if you’d be up for an interview?” he replied, inwardly hoping that she’d leave his blood alone.
It was bad enough that the scientists back home were interested in it, but he’d prefer to not be targeted by a vampire, either.
“Huh. Usually someone intervenes in my interviews with the press. I have a tendency to…overshare and be a bit blunt. But you don’t look like you’re from the Tribune, are you?” She leaned back and tipped back a shot glass that seemed to hold wine, but of course this Travis fellow would know better. “I have some free time. Why not?”
“Nah, I’m not,” he replied. In all honesty, he wasn’t even sure if he knew how to spell “Tribune”. The half-monkey sat down nearby.
“So…I’m just gonna get this first one out there right now, and I’m, like, really sorry if it’s a weird question, but the vampirism…is that something you have naturally, or were you turned at some point?”
Angelica chuckled. “That’s actually one of the most common questions vampires face. Myself especially. I was actually both born and turned. I was born to a human man and a vampire woman in the early nineteenth century. I lived as a vamplet, or dhampyr depending on your preferences, until just three years ago, when a battle gone wrong forced me to either die, lay in a coma, or be turned. It wasn’t my choice to turn, but here I am, now a full-fledged vampire. And suddenly very popular with the inhabitants of Hell because of it. Go figure.”
“Now, when you say ‘popular’…I take it that’d be sort of popular where they just won’t leave you alone, no matter how much you just wanna be left in peace, and that leads to someone getting their ass kicked?” he asked, having written the response down. Or at least some notes on it.
Angelica nodded. “You already seem to know my MO well. Let’s just say that they don’t like that vampires aren’t the ruthless killers of horror movie lore and want me to convince the vamps to go darkside.” She scoffed. “Like that’s going to happen. I’ll fight the whole Legion if I have to.”
“I’ve had some experience dealing with that kind of attention, myself,” he said with a slight chuckle. “More serial killers and such, but yeah…” He drummed his fingers on the table, thinking on his next question. “So, what is it you do for a living around here?”
“Serial killers? I’ve faced my share of those, too,” Angelica said, impressed. If this little monkey-man could evade serial killers, he deserved at least a little respect. “Funny you should ask, since you must be in my database. I run the Paranormal Investigative Division of the FBI in American and MI-5 in the UK. I’ve been a field agent for about a hundred and fifty years, but recently I had to take up the director position for the branch here in Chicago. A rogue vampire killed the old director, you see. The PID oversees all paranormal activity around the world, making sure everyone stays in line and doesn’t go off killing humans or each other. I’m the thing that things that go bump in the night are afraid of.”
“I’m not sure if I would be…wait, do they tend to cover genetic experiments?” he asked. “I’d ask this uncle of mine in the FBI, but he’s more HRT than PID.” And now was wondering if his uncle Nick knew about that particular division. “None of these serial killers would happen to be any you’ve accidentally bumped into and ultimately pissed off, would they? I wouldn’t think so because, y’know, FBI…but life’s also kind of a random thing sometimes.”
“Genetic experiments? Is that why you look like you do?” She asked. “No, we only protect humans, we don’t have any other involvement with them. Except…this one time I did have to execute a couple of hunters for killing us indiscriminately.” She shrugged. “Maybe you faced them before. Who knows? Humans do work for us, however. Still, I don’t know about or approve of animal testing of any sort,” she added
“Yeah, it is,” he replied. “Well, okay, so ‘experiment’ probably isn’t the right word…mom knew exactly what she was doing, even if there were some side effects. Anyway, not sure I’ve encountered any hunters like that. So, what could you tell me about some of the people you work with? Like, human or otherwise?”
“We’ve got quite the motley crew. There’s our deputy director, Mark Evans. He’s from England and is a human, one of our best strategists. He’s engaged to Brighton Sands, who’s a human psychic and also a killing machine. I’ve never seen someone so accurate with a blade except me.” She laughed lightly. “Our head of security is a werewolf and ex-Werewolf Corps Army Captain named Bart Michaels. And then of course there’s Danny…” She trailed off, pink dusting her fair face. “He’s my fiancé…when he’s not busy being an asshole. I’ve loved him for a century, when he was a different person. He’s a reincarnated psychic, and ex Chicago Police detective. I’d trust him with my life.”
“When you say psychic, would that be the kind that can see the future, read minds, or move stuff with their mind? I know one that could do two of the three,” he said, smiling slightly.
“Do you? We must have some friends in common,” Angelica said, pleasantly surprised. “They can read minds, Brighton more so than Danny. They’re both psychometric, which means they can get visions of the past and future by touching objects…or people. That sucks, by the way. I can’t keep secrets from Danny to save my life.” She paused. “Well…not that I’d ever have reason to.”
“It’s helped quite a bit when searching for suspects,”she added.
“Yeah, I could definitely see that coming in handy,” he said. “So, what would you say is the craziest thing to have happened on the job?”
“Oh, man, how to decide?” She bit her red-painted lip. “My insane father went on a murder spree from London to New York to here. A witch cursed herself with immortality and wanted to murder me and have both Danny and the PID to herself. This is a good one…Danny’s ex got turned into a vampire and nearly murdered me with my own sword. I was kidnapped by demons, and now some old vampire is murdering people I know to lure me into some trap. Dare I go on?”
He listened, nodding slightly. “Damn…I can get how some of that is. Haven’t dealt with demons yet, but I’m pretty sure that given enough time, it’ll happen. My luck’s just like that…As for your father, he wasn’t an abusive asshat, was he?” He seemed more concerned than anything else on that last one.
“You’re concerned about me? How sweet,” she said. “Most are to afraid of me to be kind. No, actually he was a wonderful father. Then my mother decided to turn him into a vampire, and her blood drove him insane. When I was twenty…he killed her. Right in front of me. It was then I decided to found the PID, to catch him and anyone out there like him.” She blinked, her eyes momentarily going red.
“Ah…wow. See, I ask because my own dad was a ginormous prick and I hate seeing others go through that. But that…damn. Sorry you had to go through that. Would you be okay with a hug?” he offered.
Angelica gaped. “A hug? You’re either brave or stupid, but sure. Five seconds.” She smirked and stood up, nearly six feet in her four inch heels.
He got up as well, about 5’10″…his hair, however, was closer to 7 feet when not braided. He went for a quick hug, being careful about it, as he could think of three people that’d probably be mad if he wasn’t: her, Danny, and his own girlfriend. “Yeah, I get the brave-or-stupid thing a lot,” he admitted. “So, one last question…If you had the chance to do anything over again, what would you choose?”
Angelica admired his hair as he stood and then marveled at the question. “I ask myself that every day. I think there are at least a dozen things I could’ve handled differently, but the only one I regret not doing was killing the witch back in 1888. My kindness got the better of me. Otherwise, I think I’ve made the best out of every decision I ever had to make. “Thanks for talking with me, by the way. What publication are you with? Supernatural Monthly?”
“In all honesty? I’m not with a full-blown publication so much as a blog created by some weird-ass writer that sometimes talks to me and claims that she’s, like, my deity or something…she scares me,” he replied with a slight chuckle. “And always happy to talk with people outside of my hometown. Hope everything’s going well with you and Danny, and the ass-kicking biz in general, and thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.” His tail flicked for a moment. “I should probably get going, before my girlfriend, her sister, and my aunt start to get worried. They can get kinda…intense if they’re worried.” Travis started toward the door, having taken to all-fours and walking along on his knuckles.
Angelica watched as he walked, then shook her head in slight confusion and amusement. At least she wasn’t the only one with a crazy lady in her head, but she put Malone on the PID watch list…just in case.

Inktober #14, #15

Posted: October 15, 2017 in Inktober

So…one of these days, I’ll get back to single-entry posts. But that is NOT THIS DAY!

Day 14 Prompts: Fierce, The Dog (m), The Bad Copper, The Animal Child, The Angel, Selkie

Inktober14.jpeg

Travis had to rest for now. He’d been roof hopping for about an hour, and his lungs had begun chewing him out for it. He might have been damn-near immortal, but he could still experience exhaustion.

 

After a while, he felt that he could continue again. He stepped up to a solid copper part of the roof, ready to hop to the next one…only for it to turn out that the copper was weak and gave out underneath 180 pounds of monkey-human hybrid.

 

He fell from the roof with a screech. Trav had no idea how long a recovery from this sort of fall would take, and had closed his eyes for the impact. However, it was an impact that never came.

 

Instead, he landed in a pair of leanly muscular arms. Opening one eye, he saw a pair of beating feathered wings, and a familiar face.

 

“Hey…the hell’s going on?” asked the winged man.

 

The winged part-dog man, to be precise. His uncle Tsaeb.

 

“Long, weird, incoherent story,” Travis sighed. “Got a few hours?”

 

“…What’d you do?”

 

“Nothing…?”

 

Tsaeb fixed him with a fierce stare. Travis shrank back a bit with a sheepish grin. And before the conversation could continue, a voice called out.

 

“EXCUSE ME! SIRS? HAVE YOU SEEN A SEAL SKIN AROUND ANYWHERE?” a woman asked, a somewhat Scottish accent to her voice.

 

Well, great. Now there was some random selkie hanging around. Could today get any stranger?

 

Day 15 Prompts: Mysterious, The Mouse (male), The Good Copper, The Leaf Girl, The Dark Angel, Fairy

Inktober15

Gemmy set Ivy down somewhere in a forest, the two looking around. Ivy had to take a moment to regain her focus thanks to their speed.

 

“Huh…seems they’re already done,” she said. “Now to figure out where the hell we are so we can let them know…”

 

“Oh, I don’t think you’ll be letting anyone know anything…” said a small voice.

 

They looked around, soon seeing a mouse on two legs, with almost demonic wings and cold dark eyes, holding a sword about 10 times larger than itself at Ivy’s leg. She raised an eyebrow.

 

“The hell is this?” she scoffed, before the blade was swiped across her leg. It was sharp enough to slice through her boot, pant leg, and sock, leaving a light scratch across the skin.

 

Crossing her arms, she stared down at him. “Is this supposed to sca…”

 

She collapsed right there, suddenly feeling rather weak. “Wha…?”

 

“They call me the Angel of Venom, sweetheart…and you’ve just trespassed for the last time. Both of you.”

 

He advanced toward Gemmy, who dodged as quickly as possible. She didn’t want to just leave Ivy there, but she couldn’t bring her along like this, either. So she kept dodging the mouse.

 

And that was when a blast of copper energy came at him, knocking the mouse into a tree. A figure who seemed to be covered in leafy clothing stepped forward, large fairy wings protruding from her back. Her face was covered with a veil, and she didn’t say a word to either woman.

 

Instead, she crouched down beside the assassin and wrapped a large leaf around her leg. She would look at it further in a bit. For now, though, her priority was to get her elsewhere.

 

She picked her up, gesturing for Gemmy to follow.

 

 

Inktober #11, #12, #13

Posted: October 13, 2017 in Uncategorized

So, I fell behind again…but I DID manage to finish sketching the pages for book 6, and the inks for those are underway. In the meanwhile…my last 3 Inktober prompts!

Day 11 Prompts: Run, The Cat (male), The Gardener, The Artist, The Goblin Lord, Harpy

Inktober11.jpeg

Explanations did not go as planned, it seemed. At the moment, Gemmy’s group had been running through the trees, chased by an angry mob of sorts. One of their pursuers was a cat-man with a gardening hoe, demanding that Beast stay with him.

 

“STAY, fair feline beast, and we shall have kittens together! SO many kittens!”

 

“NOT INTERESTED!” the assassin called back.

 

Another member of this mob seemed to be armed with paintbrushes, one of which whizzed right over Yvette’s head.

 

“Is it just me?!” Yvette asked. “Or does paintbrush-guy look like some low-rent Jareth rip-off?!”

 

Ivy looked back, Beast pulling her close to keep her from slamming head-first into the tree that was in her path.

 

“Yeah, ‘Vette, I think you’re right!”

 

The third of their party was a harpy, shrieking at them from above. It seemed to aim for Gemmy, who was running slowly (for her) to avoid abandoning the others. Yvette threw a shield around the three of them as the harpy swooped in. Good thing she did, too, because said harpy was both strong and vicious enough to rip someone’s head off, and Gemmy was rather fond of her head where it was.

 

“So, any plans here?!” Ivy asked.

 

Beast thought about that. “Could keep running. They should wear themselves down, right?”

 

“So would we!” Yvette shot back. “I say we stand and fight! Ivy, you go with Gemmy. She can rush the two of you out of here and I can contact her when the situation clears and we can regroup. Deal?”

 

Gemmy nodded, but Ivy looked annoyed.

 

“Just let me stay and fight with you two,” she said.

 

“Please, just keep her safe. She can outrun just about any threat, but she’s not a fighter. You, however, are, and it’s easier to keep in touch with you. Now go!”

 

Before Ivy could argue, Gemmy grabbed a hold of the psychic and took off at a blurring speed. Beast and Yvette soon turned to face their pursuers, rushing to attack.

Day 12 Prompts: Shattered, The Dog (female), The Princess, The Earthmover, The Street King, Kelpie

Inktober12

Travis woke with a groan, rubbing his midsection. He was pretty sure his liver had grown back by now. But now he found himself in unfamiliar territory once more. It looked like a sketchy back alley, but not one that he knew.

 

He seemed to be alone, as well. Good, that just meant that the psycho foxy-bitch wasn’t there to harvest his organs again. As he stood up and walked to the end of the alley, the ground began to shake. Aw, hell…earthquake? Why was there an earthquake? Did life hate him so much lately?

 

The ground continued to shake, the street below him beginning to crack and shatter. Through a particularly large crack, he could see a horse-like figure rising from the ground. On its back were a man covered in chunks of asphalt with a crown on his head. Behind him was an anthro Australian Kelpie in a dress.

 

“Hm…how about this one, dear?” asked the male.

 

The dog leaned in, before nodding.

 

“Yes, that one! Let’s bring home that one!”

 

“Anything for you, princess.”

 

Travis backed away. “Why would you want me?” he growled, cracking his knuckles.

 

“For a pet!”

 

He just laughed…before backing away and running toward the other end of the alley. The kelpie they were riding gave chase, but he had no intention of being caught again. Instead, he ran to a fire escape. Scrambling up that, he rushed to the roof. The kelpie and its riders moved after him, but weren’t able to ascend more than 5 feet from the ground. Travis noticed this and grinned, soon running to jump to the next roof.

 

He figured that if he could keep up with that, he could find his way home eventually…

 

Maybe.

 

But then, his sense of direction was almost as awful as his luck.

Day 13 Prompts: Teeming, The Cat (female), The Gentleman, The Gentleman’s Hat, The Slayer, Grim Reaper

Inktober13

Beast and Yvette had managed to fight off their attackers, and were now looking to regroup with the others. Beast’s kitty tail swished as they walked along, when they encountered a well-dressed man in a tailored suit. He had wooden stakes at his waist, and his hat was teeming with silver. It seemed to ooze out of the brim and the band.

 

“…I understand one of you is a witch, correct?” he asked.

 

Yvette tilted her head in confusion. “Who wants to know and why?”

 

“I’m a witch hunter. And I have come to stake you.”

 

“That’s how you kill a vampire, not a witch…”

 

“”Don’t care!”

 

Beast and Yvette prepared to fight him, when a scythe seemed to split the guy into pieces. Wait, did that scythe have four blades?

 

And why did the guy holding it look like a white-haired Travis?!

 

Beast glared with confusion.

 

“Who the hell are you?”

 

The white-haired monkey man bowed. “I am Death PA-6. I’m a Grim Reaper. And that man you were facing was a vengeful spirit. “

Sally Webber’s dream is coming true: Zander is back and taking her out for a night on the town–on a planet hundreds of light years away from Earth.

But when an accident separates her from her alien tour guide, she’s thrown into the seedy underbelly of an insane city where nothing is as it seems. Suddenly lost and desperate to get back home, Sally is willing to do anything to get out, even if it means accepting spontaneous marriage proposals, crashing some fancy parties, or joining what appears to be the space mob.

All she wanted was some decent interstellar pizza, but now it might be the end of the world as evil nanobots and an out of control AI try to take the universe by force, and the only one who can stop them is missing in action. Sally has no choice but to try to stop them herself–if she can stay alive that long.

Alienation is the fantastic sequel to the hit sci-fi comedy, Starstruck by S.E.Anderson.

Starstruck and Alienation Add

And now, I’m happy to present a guest post from S.E. Anderson herself, about the reading playlist for Starstruck (which I highly recommend, by the way). As someone who would be quite LOST without some good music to listen to (particularly while reading), myself, this sounds awesome.

Starstruck – Reading Playlist

As for a lot of writers I know, I really like writing to music to get myself in the zone. Sometimes I put on playlists from Youtube (adventure music, scifi music) which really give the writing a good atmosphere. But other times? I like listening to my own playlists. When a song comes on that matches exactly what I’m writing, I get chills, and throw them into a special playlist for later.

This is that special playlist: I boiled it down to 10 specific songs that I feel match Starstruck in an awesome way. Some songs were suggested by an amazing fan, Cora, who pushed me to tie them all together and share them with you. Check it out!

(I do not own the rights to these songs – simply offering up a little playlist suggestion!).
