I remember one summer in short shorts, slathered in sunscreen, in the passenger side of my friend's convertible listening to Jackson Browne and Bruce Springsteen while the days seemed to stretch before us forever.
I think that's why making a playlist for my books seems so easy.
I released my first standalone title, THE BREAK-IN through Dreamspinner Press and when my friend Kelley asked me what music would go with my ebook, I found several that seemed to fit both with my characters and my story.
I have to admit when I’m looking for songs to fill a playlist for a story, they have to meet one of two criteria:
- The lyrics have to match what a character is feeling
- The song captures the mood of a scene

Ten years ago, roboticist Forbes Pohle received a visit from time-traveler Oliver Lennox. “Wait for me,” Oliver said. Now a decade has come and gone, and Oliver has returned. However, Forbes never dreamed Oliver would reappear as the point man for a gang of technology thieves breaking into his lab. He finds the younger Oliver just as sexy and even more annoying; still, he must convince him their happily-ever-after is meant to be—but he only has the time it takes his robotic cat Jeepers to thwart the thieves to do it. After waiting so long, he could lose everything in the span of seconds.
