Hello, everyone. Day three of the tour and I want to talk about music.
Many of my readers know how much music plays into my writing. Some of my best memories are filtered through the music of the time. I even danced with my husband the first night we met ;)
So, it makes sense that I have a musical soundtrack for each of my books and of course, Tease Me was no different. So, here are a few of the songs I wrote to while I was writing:
