Will Stephens doesn't chase dreams outside of his small, Missouri town. He's perfectly happy with his high school sweetheart in his arms, his guitar and his quiet, summer nights. But life for Will is about to change. He's about to find out what it's like to chase a dream—one that he has loved since he first laid eyes on her.
A firefighter by day and a musician by night, Will balances his dangerous career with his weekend gigs, but his mind is never far from Julia Lang. They said their goodbyes years ago, but Will now hopes a song from their past will help Julia stop and remember a life they once shared together. His only fear is that he's waited too long to get his song to her ears.
Now, you can listen to the
Butterfly Weeds and My Butterfly soundtracks on my YouTube playlist! Just hit Play All and listen away! And don't forget to look for the soundtrack to For All You Have Left in my interview with Nawanda Files coming soon!
I don't often write with music playing. My characters' words and thoughts do a pretty good job of filling my head instead. But there is no doubt a playlist silently playing in the background for each of my novels! I've included the soundtracks to Butterfly Weeds and My Butterfly below! This is by no means a final list. I'm sure there are other great songs that could also play in the background of each story! Feel free to add those songs in the comments if you have them! And look for the soundtrack to my latest novel, For All You Have Left, in my interview with Nawanda Files coming soon!

I write stories about what I know. I grew up on a farm in small-town Missouri, so my characters and stories reflect this life and hopefully pay homage to all that goes with it, including the rain on tin roofs, old trucks with holes in the floorboards and summer nights full of stars, fireflies and tractor pulls!
So, please enjoy some of the photos that have inspired Butterfly Weeds, My Butterfly and For All You Have Left!
Happy New Year's Eve! It has been a great year! Thanks so very much for all your kind words and constant support! It really does mean the world! And thank you for making Will and Julia's story a part of your 2013! I'm so excited for you to meet Jorgen and Logan in 2014!
I write about rain on tin roofs, gravel roads, old trucks with holes in the floorboards and small-town summer nights. I grew up on a farm in a little Midwestern town. Now, I live in Kansas City, Mo., with my weatherman husband.
