Here is a list of music I listened to while penning Miss Independent. I've read many authors can listen to music while writing, while some need total silence. I'm a mixture of both. Depending on the scene, sometimes I need to hear certain beats to keep the momentum going. Other times, if I hear more than just the hum of my laptop, I'm completely thrown off and tossed out of a scene and its dynamic entirely.

The first song on the list is pretty obvious as it is in fact the reason I originally named the novel as I did. There's a little story behind how Miss Independent originally came about, including an almost unhealthy obsession with all things Beverly Hills 90210 (the original class, of course) and why it took me 10 years to finally put the story on paper. That'll come at a later time, most likely after I've finished book 2.

Anywho. My list of music for this book is very eclectic. Some songs are flat out explicit, so if you choose to, listen at your own risk. The bolded ones are the songs I listened to the most/remained on repeat for a large portion of the book:

Miss Independent ~ Kelly Clarkson

Take Me to Church ~ Hozier

Touch Me, Why ~ Cathy Dennis

Make it Rain ~ Ed Sheeran

Happily Ever After ~ Case

Little Too Much ~ Natasha Bedingfield

Can’t Believe ~ Carl Thomas feat Faith Evans

Halo ~ Bethany Joy Lenz

Wrecking Ball ~ Miley Cyrus

Best Thing I Never Had ~ Beyonce

Beat It ~ Michael Jackson

Sugar We’re Going Down Swingin’ ~ Fall Out Boy

Can’t Raise A Man ~ K. Michelle

Closer ~ Nine Inch Nails

Always Be My Baby ~ Mariah Carey

Heartbreaker (Remix) ~ Mariah Carey

Rich Girl ~ Hall & Oates

Hold You In My Arms ~ Ray LaMontagne

Don’t Let Go ~ En Vogue

Skinny Love ~ Birdy

Hips Swing ~ Savage



At some point, I'm going to blog why some songs hit a certain spot for me and were played numerous times throughout, until even my dog was sick of hearing them.

First thing's first:

Hope you all haven't forgotten about me!


Happy New Year! I'm a month late and ten dollars short given that it's now February, but I wanted to get that out there before going on. I hope your year is going well so far and if not, I hope that it improves GREATLY, as I'm hoping mine will soon enough.


"Why the hell are you sitting over there acting as if he's not talking about helping to save a kid from a piss poor motorcycle club that operates inside the basement of a run down liquor store formerly owned by Nazi's, motherfucker?"

Easily one of my favorite lines from the book.



The date will come later this month.

It will also be in Kindle Unlimited.

I first want to say to my readers that I DEEPLY apologize for the continued delay and silence regarding Reaper's Fight.

But I have to be honest in telling you all that I have considered not even putting it, or any other book like it, out for the last few months or so, and I can't fully explain all of that without fearing that I might piss you off or let you down or both.

There's been so much going on in the world as of late, one thing on top of another, piling on like bricks on top of more, unsturdy bricks, that I've been battling with myself and what I write; I've been battling with how I write and what's appropriate as well as what isn't. And for a longggg time, the joy of putting words on paper had been completely zapped from me. I'd literally look at my laptop and sigh because I just couldn't bring myself to upload the book or allow it to be read by anyone else, even as an edit.

Currently, I'm still struggling on a certain level, but I'm al…
