Each book I write has a piece of music that goes with it. The music doesn’t necessarily have a similar theme as the story. Often the music doesn’t even make an appearance in the book. The music is mainly for me — it is part of how I write. However, in the case of SKELETON CREW, the music was closely associated with the story.
