I love listening to Adam Hurst while I write. His cello music is haunting and beautiful. Music helps me to relax and focus, but it can be tricky to find the right level of energy without it becoming a distraction. Knowing that Hurst writes most of the music himself is icing on the cake. I own all of his albums, but for writing Magic in the Imperium novels, ‘From Silence’ is my favorite. It’s like closing your eyes and stepping into another world. How convenient.
