Tuesday Tunes: Stronger Woman

Posted at Jan 20, 2015 2:49 pm in , ,

In perusing my Itunes library, I realized something. I love music that inspires and with a message. I have some fun songs as well, but I guess I love in my music what I love in books: I want to feel something. And I want that something to enrich my life. Here’s one of my favorites. […]

Tuesday Tunes: I Won’t Give Up

Posted at Jan 13, 2015 3:52 pm in , , ,

Some songs truly touch me. I write romance novels because I love the optimism of the genre. There’s too much tragedy in the world. But there are also beauty and hope and honor and heroes.  I’ve been thinking a lot about my writing lately. What kind of writer I want to be known as? I love writing […]

Tuesday Tunes: A Classic

Posted at Jan 6, 2015 2:01 pm in , , , , ,

Okay…so I’m going to admit it. I’m a HUGE Barry Manilow Fan! I have most of his albums and when I was younger, he spoke to my heart. Still does, actually. Glee did an episode one season called Guilty Pleasures. Mr. Manilow was featured (along with Copacabana). For me, though, I offer no apologies. I […]

Tuesday Tunes: Silent Night

Posted at Dec 23, 2014 4:31 am in , , ,

Some memories don’t dim but only grow brighter with age. For me, one night stands out more clearly than most. Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve services during my childhood were magical. The pastor dimmed the church’s lights and he lit his own candle from the Christ candle. Through the darkness, the simple quiet words of long-loved […]

Tuesday Tunes: Hallelujah!

As a teenager, I was in the A Capella Choir at my high school for three years. Each year during Christmas we would have a concert culminating in the Hallelujah Chorus by Handel. There’s nothing I love more. Here is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing it…and for a smile, The Silent Monks, just because I […]

Tuesday Tunes: A Pentatonix Twist on Christmas

Posted at Dec 9, 2014 2:23 pm in , , , , , ,

This is December, a month of celebration for Christmas. One of my favorite elements of the season is the music. Silent Night during a candlelight service, O Holy Night by a soloist during church, my dad and brother singing We Three Kings with alternate lyrics that my mom would frown on. I tend to embrace the traditional, […]

Tuesday Tunes: Love Conquers All

Sometimes a song haunts you. In my stories, I’ve always been drawn to characters who don’t give up, who have faith and who sacrifice. And who fight for what’s right…and for the person they care about. I think that’s why this song touches me so much. Do you have a song that touches you?

Tuesday Tunes: A Hero Comes Along

Posted at Nov 18, 2014 8:00 am in , , , , , , , , , ,

Some days I wonder if heroes exist anymore. I’m an optimist at heart, but sometimes I look around and have to wonder…where have all the heroes gone? I’m not talking about celebrities or sports figures or the rich and famous. I mean the person who sacrifices without expectation. The man or woman who does the […]
