A Dream of a Woman Playlist on Largehearted Boy

Ok I’ve always thought of how my musical past and training relates to my writing, and there’s always a rotating suite of music with me when I’m deep in writing a book. And I got to talk about that this time around for A Dream of a Woman and compile a playlist for Largehearted Boy‘s Book Notes section. IT IS VERY COOL.

Ok, thank you so much friends. I hope that if you want to come, that you can come.



I put so much of myself into this book and it was sometimes very difficult to write. I hope you like it and I’m grateful for all the support I’ve received so far. Thank you so much—see you out there.
