A Secret Muse is a Multi-Media Dark Fantasy Experience

Music, poetry and art are featured in the ‘The Creatives’ series, and to be honest, I find it difficult to separate one from the other. One of the reviews written by a reader on amazon summed my reasoning for integrating all three aspects of the arts into this series beautifully. As any artist will tell you, there’s nothing better than when someone ‘gets’ your art, and this reviewer definitely ‘got’ me!

“The book (A Secret Muse, book 1) is laced with esoteric references to music and art and locations in Italy. I actually Googled a few of the classical music references with the pleasant surprise of listening to Chopin, Debussy and Beethoven (You Tube recordings), which helped set the mood, a multi-media experience.”

Here’s a list of the music mentioned in A Secret Muse, book 1:

Cat Stevens: Wild world


The Rolling Stones: Beast Of Burden

Bettehoven: Pathétique sonata, second movement

Chopin: Nocturne in E flat major

Debussy: Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum, from The Children’s Corner
