Music That Inspired Forever Beth Lost and Found


Music, a charger for my creativity helps me feel what my characters are feeling at that movement – that scene. Often I will recite a verse or two or name the song and artist in certain scenes to allow the reader to experience –visualize the scene more vividly. 


Although not every song that inspired the Forever Beth series is not listed I created a playlist that inspired me the most and greatly influenced certain chapters.  Please take a listen, even maybe re-reading a chapter while listening. If new to the Forever Beth series, I suggest a glass of wine, ear-buds to listen and from what I've been told a box of tissues.

I hope this gives you another way to experience the Forever Beth Series. Enjoy and God Bless!!!!!

Valerie by: Amy Winehouse

Chapter six:
Wind Beneath My Wings by: Beth Midler

Throughout the Writing of Lost and Found one particular artist took me from the beginning to the end. I must have played Adele’s 21 Album every day for over six months EMPHASIS on "Take It All and One and Only".  Adele if you somehow get wind of this…. Thank You Thank You Thank You!
