Music Monday with Jennifer Gravely

Good morning!  Please welcome Jennifer Gravely to my blog today as she discusses her musical inspiration behind her book Drown.

Drown takes place in the late 80s and early 90s in the fictional Southern town of Keowee. Whereas most writers find inspiration in the music as they write, I found that the story itself dictated the list. Most of the songs are mentioned in the story or fit with a particular scene in the book. The only modern song used is one that if I were directing a movie and creating the soundtrack, I’d use for the main theme. ;) Hope you enjoy revisiting some great old tunes!
