Hello, all! Thank you so much for joining me once again for my author column here at Sinfully!
Music features pretty heavily in my books, especially in the THIRDS series. I listen to music while I write, so it's no surprise when songs make into the story. I can't help it. Music has always been such an inspiration for me. As I write, I create playlists for my books, and my newest release Darkest Hour Before Dawn is no exception. Each THIRDS book has it's own playlist on Spotify filled with songs that fit certain scenes or moods in the story.
Depending on what I'm writing I can either listen to songs with lyrics, or have to listen to instrumental. If I'm writing a fast-paced action sequence, I tend to listen to fast thumping songs that kick things into high gear. When I'm writing Dex and Sloane, I tend to listen to classic rock. Eighties music features a lot in the THIRDS books. For Seb and Hudson's book we go back a little bit more. Where Dex is an eighties child, having been born in 1980, his childhood involved classic rock and eighties tunes. Seb was born in 1974, and his parents dated during the disco age. They taught their boys to dance all the disco classics, and later on Julia Hobbs taught Hudson. I listened to quite a bit of disco and 70s tunes while writing their book. Pandora has a station called Disco Radio that I absolutely love.
I grew up in a home filled with music, whether it was Latin music, the golden oldies, seventies disco, or eighties electro pop, and I love that it's had such a huge influence on me as a person. For me, music soothes the soul. What's your favorite music to get down and boogie to?

THIRDS Team Leader Sebastian Hobbs and Chief Medical Examiner Hudson Colbourn are as much in love now as they were nearly seven years ago when a tragic event on the job destroyed their relationship. The two drift together only to be pulled apart time and time again. When Hudson draws the interest of dangerous enemies, both within and outside the organization, Seb wants nothing more than to protect the man who still means everything to him.
As life-and-death events, an uncertain future, and startling truths draw Hudson and Seb to each other yet again, they must make a choice: trust their love and take strength from what they share, or lose what matters most… for good this time.
