I got my love of music- and singing- from my dad. He loves to sing! And i have memories of singing and dancing around with him. My dad is the kind of guy that likes to crank up the music and sing it loud, and I love to join him. We'd go for a drive somewhere and turn up the radio, singing along. He's also the kind of man that will sing and dance in public- he doesn't care! He says he's born without the embarrassed gene. I totally believe it.
I don't know where my life would be without music. It's my solace, and so there are many songs that I can listen to which will help me reflect on a certain part of my life. Some are good memories, some are difficult, but somehow I'm always associating events in my life with a song.
And when it comes to music and my books, my dad is one of my biggest supporters. It's great to be able to share two of my biggest dreams in life with him.
Thanks for coming by and reading! I'd love to know a song that takes you back to a memory. Stay tuned for more Music memories!
And if you haven't yet checked out my Love and Music in Texas stories...well, the first one (And the only one released) is available right now for just $.99 The passionate way Avery feels about music reflects mine, and so it was very easy to write her character with such emotion. I channeled my love of music to her character.
