Welcome to this week’s Romance Writer’s Weekly Blog Hop. If you’ve arrived from Susan Scott Shelley’s blog, hi and thanks for clicking!

This week the talented Susan has given us this challenge: A player’s walk-up song (aka Entrance Theme), whether he’s heading to the pitcher’s mound or the batter’s box, can tell a lot about him. What song would you choose for yours?

Music has always held a special place in my life. It can trigger memories, of times gone by–happy times such as when I first fell in love (Meatloaf’s Paradise by the Dashboard Light anybody?), and sad times such as when my beloved Grandma died. When I’m writing a book I like to create an atmospheric playlist–the type of music that the protagonists would listen to–and this aids me in setting the scene.
So it comes as no surprise that when I read Susan Scott Shelley’s question I knew I had to answer it. So many songs sprang to mind, and the hardest thing was to narrow my choices down to one. However, that’s what I’ve managed to do!
Who doesn’t love a bit of Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes? I chose this song for a few reasons. The first is that it takes me back to my teenage years, when I first watched Dirty Dancing and fell in love with falling in love! It reminds me of the essence of a love story–that perfect moment when the boy from the wrong side of the tracks falls for the girl who is out of his reach.

But the main reason I chose this song is that I’m so grateful for the opportunity to write and share my words with others, and I really am having the time of my life doing so. It’s not every day that you get to achieve your dreams and have your stories published, and I for one am loving every minute!

But that’s enough about me. Now let’s hop over to  Fiona Riplee’s blog and see what she has to say.
