When I was writing The Unidentified Redhead, I always heard a soundtrack. Whether they were songs I was listening to when writing, or a song that I envisioned the characters listening to in that particular scene, there was always a soundtrack. These songs are some of my all time favorites, and a great companion to the book. Read a scene, then read it again with the music, and see if it changes anything for you.

We tried so hard to make sure we could add all the songs for you, but you will see that there are a few songs with an * next to them. We couldn’t add them to the playlist, but they are available on iTunes, and I highly recommend that you give them a try, especially the Peter Gabriel and the Ben Harper.

Oh, and one more thing. Try out the Prodigy…go ahead…try it…I dare you.
