Well, this year’s soundtrack is including a bit more rock and roll than I first thought. While most of my characters have their favorites (and sometimes, yes, this author’s favorites filter into their likes/dislikes), it is the unlikely preferences of some that throw strangers off when they first meet the Swan siblings.
For example, I didn’t discover Roland’s taste for Queen, The Who and David Bowie until a snippet or two ago. Tennyson is more ecclectic in his taste, given his travels.
How about you, dear writer? What do your characters like to listen to?
