‘The mystery of enchanted forests and the thrumming chill of icy passes’ – Melissa McPhail

for logoMy guest this week began writing at roughly the same time as she started piano lessons. She says music and writing have always been natural pursuits for her, ways to help her grapple with a fundamental need to express the inexpressible. When she needed an aural companion for her epic fantasy series she found it in Bill Whelan’s rousing Riverdance. She is Melissa McPhail and she will be here on Wednesday talking about her Undercover Soundtrack.

    Thank you so much for having me, Roz. I enjoyed examining my novel and writing process through the angle of music. Invigorating!

      My pleasure, Melissa. That line of yours about expressing the inexpressible (which is taken from Melissa’s post) perfectly captured the artistic struggle. Thanks for writing for The Undercover Soundtrack and I look forward to sharing your post on Wednesday.

    Well? It’s Wednesday! I want to know about expressing the inexpressible. 😉

    Hi, Melissa [waves]. I love finding authors I know over here on the Red Blog. I look forward to your post.

      You two know each other? How inexpressibly perfect.

      I know Melissa from Goodreads, and she joined the authors on the Magic Appreciation Tour recently. It’s a small Internet. 🙂
