At She Reads we’re endlessly fascinated by the process of storytelling. And for many authors, part of that process includes a playlist that they write to–a musical collage of sorts. In many cases once you know the playlist you can recognize those emotional undertones running through the story.
We asked this month’s featured author, Sarah Jio, to share her playlist for Blackberry Winter. I’m not sure about you but we can “hear” the story in these songs.
