"Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life." - Beethoven

My two main characters are men who find themselves torn between the spiritual and the sensual life, and they are both musicians: Father Brennan Burke, a choirmaster; Monty Collins, a bluesman. Music is vitally important in my own life, and in my work as a writer. If you would like to immerse yourself in the music that accompanies my characters throughout their trials and tribulations, check out the "soundtracks" here: (Occasionally, the lyrics to a soundtrack selection are not available for reprint, and are not included in the text.)
