FAVORITES - MUSIC

One personal quirk is that I must always have music in the background when I'm writing. And each piece of music in some way relates to the story.

For instance, The Rich Shall Inherit is set partly in Venice and the culmination is a terrific chase scene with the killer stalking our heroine through the fog-shrouded alleys and canals. It's Carnival time and everyone is in disguise and wearing strange and sinister masks. I knew that Vivaldi had composed in Venice and of course the Four Seasons is one of his most famous and popular works. I must tell you though, that if you haven't heard Anne Sophie Mutter's version of The Four Seasons you haven't heard 'chase' music. It sends thrills down your spine.



But this wasn't the version I played when I was writing: that was by Academy of St.Martin in the Fields, conducted by Sir Neville Marriner.



It's quite different but equally as thrilling. Try reading these exciting chapters of The Rich Shall Inherit to the background of this music.

For Now or Never it was Neil Young's haunting Harvest Moon album.



For the Irish setting of Legacy of Secrets it was my favorite Van Morrison album, Avalon Sunset,



and the raucous, sensational Pogues.



Music is always an inspiration, and finding just the right album makes certain scenes come alive for me.

'PARIS' was written to a combination of the great jazz pianist Bill Evans' At Town Hall (with Symphony Orchestra).Bill Evans plucks notes from the air as lightly as snowflakes and embeds them in your soul. And to Dexter Gordon's version of Thelonious Monk's Round Midnight, soft, smooth, sexy.
