Writer Radio: Halsey – Gasoline

Every book I write has a soundtrack. And sometimes those soundtracks become musical obsessions that I put on repeat for days on end because they so perfectly represent the piece that I’m working on.

Right now I’m absolutely in love with the artist Halsey.  The raw emotions found in her Badlands album has really helped me to tap into the underlying feelings of my new main character.

A young witch that must shoulder the burden of centuries of great witches in her family that came before her. A duty to be the first line of defence to protect the world from tearing itself apart through magical means. To have to face so many expectations when all she wants is to be normal. To want to live her life quietly like everyone else, but to have her path be forged before she was even born. How hard must it be to feel like no matter how far you run or how deep you try to bury your nature, none of it is in your control, and eventually you must face what is coming?

As I write and uncover this story, this  song has become the personal anthem of Annalise.
