Once in awhile I have a song so loudly in my head, nothing will jar it loose. If this happens when I’m writing, it will greatly influence the story. This happened, quite by accident, when I started writing my romantic suspense novel, Web of Lies. My son had recently introduced me to the song Primaveraby Ludovico Einaudi. It was the first song I’d heard by this musician, and I was really taken with it. Somehow, it wove itself throughout the story, and I found that I had difficulty writing unless I listened to it, almost non-stop. I can still feel the dynamics of the song in the story.
The song is very passionate and I can really sense it in the first love scene. It starts simply enough, Zoe Hamilton and Rhett Archer chatting over dinner at her home. Soon, though, it becomes something much more.
