Fire and Ice is thrilled to be participating in two stops on the Indelible Blog Tour hosted by Once upon a Twilight and Lani Woodland. Today we are talking about the music that inspired Lani in her writing process…
She says “Intrinsical had a playlist, but Indelible really didn’t. I think music can be really important while writing. It can totally help set the mood. In high school, I did a science fair project on if music really affected us. It did. Listening to music raised and lowered the blood pressure. Sometimes it triggers the emotions that I need in the scene I’m working on. That is one of the reasons I like to have music on while I’m writing. For Indelible I had my whole music library play or I would sometimes select a random song that I was in the mood for in the moment. Of course all of the songs that I had on my Intrinsical playlist were part of what that larger library, so here are a few of the songs from Intrinsical’s playlist. I would be interested to know if any of you have heard songs that made you think of Indelible or its characters.”

Yara is beginning to understand just how much her life will change now that her Waker abilities have emerged. She has come to terms with the fact that seeing ghosts is part of her life, but she isn’t ready to let being a Waker dictate her choices. All she wants is a ghost-free senior year with her boyfriend, Brent, and her best friend, Cherie. But Yara soon discovers that there are more dark secrets in her school’s history than just the curse she broke. While an angry ghost makes Yara question everything she thought she knew about spirits, she and Brent learn that there are long reaching consequences to last year’s adventures. As new enemies emerge and old ghosts resurface, Yara finds herself in the center of another deadly mystery, and this time she has to contend with the living as well as the dead
About the Author: Lani Woodland has been an avid reader since elementary school when she first discovered the Babysitters Club and Sweet Valley Twins series. In sixth grade she began writing plays and recruiting (with force when necessary) her friends to act them out. Most of these early works were inspired by She-Ra, the epitome of girl power to her young self.
She graduated from BYU with a BS in Family Science. Lani has always loved scary stories, and has a hard time enjoying any book without at least a little romance in it. She lives in Southern California with her husband, their two children and a large collection of board games. She has worked as a spot-welder, babysitter, janitor, photographer, gymnastics coach, and movie extra. She enjoys bonfires at the beach, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, speed talking, chocolate as a cure-all, and the word “precisely”.
