Now Maggie has been given the chance of her after-life to become a Guard, nothing will stand in her way. Not even the undeniable attraction she feels for her trainer and past love—Jackson. But when the battle between Shadowed and Guard begins again which side will she choose?

When her boss, Felix, partners Jackson and Maggie up with Ally and Cooper to investigate terrifying Shadowed activity, she doesn’t think it could get any worse. Jackson and Cooper barely tolerate each other and this time, Maggie isn’t just proving her loyalty to the Guard during one mission...she has a side mission too. One so secret and so dangerous she can’t tell a soul...

 Now on to the Playlist!

For Soul Taken music didn’t play a huge role while I was writing. I did listen to a few songs to get into the “mood” of the book though.

The Other Side from Bruno Mars featuring CeeLo Green

Dark Side by Kelly Clarkson

The Sun Will Rise by Kelly Clarkson

Not Over You by Gavin Degraw

These songs came up on my Pandora playlist at some point and they just reminded me of my characters. “The Other Side” was for Jackson, even though his character has changed quite a bit since then. “Dark Side” was for Maggie and her overall struggle with her past. “The Sun Will Rise” is a beautiful song that is uplifting and in my mind reminded me of Ally. “Not Over You” is for Cooper. I had a different idea for his story after finishing up Soul Taken but that has since changed, but it is hard for me not to think of Cooper when I hear it.

While writing Soul Possessed I used to listen to “New Age Instrumental” on Pandora until a movie score came on which changed my taste quite a bit. While I love classical music, movie scores brought out the visual aspect of my scenes a bit more.

A few examples of that playlist (since it is very long!): 

Breathe by Greg Maroney

Dark Night of the Soul by Philip Wesley

Sargasso Sea

The Game Has Changed by Daft Punk (Tron Legacy)

“Breathe” is for a particularly romantic scene in SP (that’s all I’m saying :0) ).  “Dark Night of the Soul” isn’t tagged to a particular scene I just love it. “Sargasso Sea” is for a scene later in the in the book in the After. “The Game Has Changed” changed the ending to Soul Possessed completely. I was writing up the last scene when this song came onto Pandora and I extended the story with the inspiration from this song to what is now the true ending to the story.         

Thanks for having me!

Thank you Katlyn! This is a super cool playlist!!
