Writing and Music by Christi J. Whitney

I’ve always been eclectic in my choice of music. I was a musical theatre major for a while so, of course, musical soundtracks are important. But I also adore film soundtracks, and I have a list of my favorite composers for sure. Then, there’s classical music, Celtic music, 90’s grunge, and alternative music. And who can forget the 80’s? I also enjoy discovering lesser-known artists and adding them into my playlists.

As a writer, music serves as a large part of my inspiration. Having music playing while I brainstorm ideas or write scenes is essential. The right music really sets the stage for the moments I’m creating with words. I have a playlist for every manuscript I’m working on, and by that, I mean certain songs that I will repeat in the background while I’m working my way through my stories. If I’m suffering from writer’s block, just putting on a song can help break loose those trapped ideas. 

For Bleeder, I listened to all sorts of music, but I had a handful of go-to tracks that found their way into my repeat section. How about you? Do you have a playlist or a song that you find yourself turning to as you write?

The Threshold Novels Book 1

by Christi J. Whitney

Genre: YA Urban Fantasy

What happens when lightning strikes?

Seventeen-year-old Selene Windell doesn’t remember. But ghosts of her accident haunt her – fragments of memories, deep-rooted fears, and a freakish electrical curse she can’t shake.

Can one lightning strike change everything?

Phoebus, a trained soldier from the dimension of Threshold, knows something threatens his homeland. In one flash of light, a girl from the Otherside sees his face, and he has to act – not only to protect the secrecy of his world, but also to protect himself.

Selene wants answers, and the mysterious new boy in town has them. Phoebus has a duty, and the strange Othersider girl stands in his way.

But will they be able to navigate their dark pasts and unrelenting connection before sinister creatures infiltrate Threshold and destroy far more than Selene’s small coastal town?

Christi J. Whitney is a former high school theatre director with a weakness for sci-fi/fantasy conventions and superhero films. She loves a hot cup of coffee, a plate of sushi, and a good book—though not necessarily in that order.

Christi is the author of the YA fantasy series The Romany Outcasts, which includes the novels Grey, Shadow, and Midnight (published with HarperCollinsUK). Christi lives outside of Atlanta with her husband and two sons. When not spending time with family or taking a ridiculous number of trips to Walt Disney World, Christi can be found directing plays for the theatre, making costumes for both stage and cosplay, geeking out over Doctor Who, defending the house of green and silver, and always pretending she’s a tad bit British.
