I AM BARBARELLA The playlist for my debut story collection includes: songs I’ve always loved, songs inspired by the characters in the book, songs I listened to while writing over the past 4.5 years, songs of heartache and innocence, songs of desperation, songs of true love, songs of angst, of melancholy, and songs of freedom. I hope you’ll listen, enjoy, and share.
