Praise for the Book:

“Vividly imagined, this novel is the perfect mix of modern love story and literary fiction. One brimming with genuine emotion that had me re-reading passages simply because they were too beautifully written to experience just once.” --Julie N. Ford, author of With No Regrets

“This book is not only an engaging and satisfying supernatural romance, but also a beautiful story about life, death, and the gray places in between.” --E.B. Wheeler, author of The Haunting of Springett Hall

"This is one of those stories that stays with you long after the closing scene. It was beautifully imagined and vividly written and I absolutely loved it!” --Teresa Richards, author of Emerald Bound

Music as a Muse

When I’m actually writing, I prefer to work in silence. But before I sit down to write, I’ll usually imagine the scene I’ll be working on. And that’s where music comes in to play the part of muse. Almost all the scenes in my book were imagined while I listened to music, because the right song helped me feel my characters’ emotions more deeply and authentically. Here are some of the songs that inspired scenes in Beyond the Rising Tide:

Kina Grannis – Sound of Silence
John Garrison – Never Far from Me
Susie Suh – Here with Me
Ben Howard – Promise
Matthew Perryman Jones – The Angels Were Singing
Kodaline – All I Want
Patrick Watson – Lighthouse
Garrison Starr – Sit With Me Tonight
Matthew Perryman Jones – Only You
Aqualung – Take On Me
Katie Herzig – I Hurt Too
Daughter – Medicine
Aqualung – Thin Air
Jose Gonzalez – Stay Alive
Coldplay – Death and All His Friends
Mree – Breathe Easy
