I’m a huge fan of Largehearted Boy’s website, where music and words are totally boyfriend/girlfriend. So I was flattered when he said I could contribute a playlist about Why Moms Are Weird for Book Notes. The concept is to write a list of songs or albums that inspired or are featured in the novel. After the eighteenth song I had to walk away from the Word document, or I would have had to photocopy my iPod and scan it into the piece.

My novel now has a mix tape.
