Musical Monday: Donna Hosie

Welcome to the first installment of Musical Monday. Every Monday I will feature a book and the music that inspired it! This is an awesome opportunity to showcase your book and also inspire other writers looking for new music. On the blog today we have the fabulous author Donna Hosie!

Name: Donna Hosie


THE SPIRIT OF NIMUE (May 31, 2013)

 YA Urban Fantasy

This is what Donna had to say about her soundtrack of choice for The Return to Camelot Trilogy:

“My writing playlist is based entirely on soundtracks. I find instrumental music incredibly inspiring. Because I write about knights and battles and loss, I find that the following really gets me in the mood: 

  • Possession from the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix soundtrack
  • The Half Killed from the Atonement Soundtrack
  • Prepared to do Anything from the Sherlock Season two soundtrack
  • Immolation from the Angels and Demons soundtrack
  • Over Hill from The Hobbit Soundtrack
  • The Car Chase from the A Beautiful Mind soundtrack
  • The Titanic soundtrack (guilty pleasure)
  • Adagio for Strings.”

    Read Searching for Arthur last year. I didn’t know there was a sequel already. That is awesome because I loved it.

    Great musical selection there, especially Potter.
