Kate SeRine, Author of SAFE FROM HARM (Protect & Serve #2), Talks About Staying True to Each Dawson Brother’s “Voice” (with a giveaway!)

Loved it! Check out my review here.

How do you stay true to each brother’s voice? Do you have a mood board or trick you use to get inside each brother’s head?

I set up a music playlist that’s chosen specifically to represent that brother’s personality as well as the tone of the plot, the nature of the relationship between the main characters, etc. They’re usually pretty extensive, consisting of a few dozen songs. Music is a huge part of my writing process, so when it’s time to immerse myself in that brother’s story, I have an entire soundtrack. 🙂


For Safe from Harm, some of the key artists on my playlist included:

This Wild Life

Ray LaMontagne

Band of Horses


The Heavy


Thousand Foot Krutch

Like a Storm
