I don't remember the first time I listened to a Metric song but I remember instantly falling head over heels with the Canadian band's 2008 hit "Help I'm Alive." If watch movies (and pay attention to the soundtrack/ score) they might be a familiar sound. Their music has been featured in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Scott Pilgrim … Continue reading Secret Heart Playlist Track 7: Stadium Love
I'm a big fan of the music duo She & Him comprised of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. I love the soulful 60's vibe they give their songs, especially their cover of the Smith's Please, Please, Please, Let me Get What I Want," that first appeared on the soundtrack to one of my favorite movies 500 … Continue reading Secret Heart Soundtrack Track 6: Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want

"I'm Making Eyes At You" is one of my favorite songs in the Secret Heart soundtrack. The beat is so infectious it's hard not to dance in my chair. This song is almost as good as "I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You." So you want my affection? We both know you'll only … Continue reading Secret Heart Soundtrack Track 4: I’m Making Eyes At You
It's no coincidence that I chose to release Secret Heart on National Coming Out Day. A portion of all of my book sales will be donated to GLSEN (The Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network) because all students need a safe space in their school. I'm not throwing a launch party for Secret Heart, and I urge you to donate to GSLEN instead.
I've been a fan of Bloc Party since their album Silent Alarm released in 2004. The song, "Modern Love" still haunts me, so naturally it made it's way to my playlist while writing Secret Heart and then it magically worked it's way into a scene with Madison and Avery. What are you holding out for? What's always in the … Continue reading Secret Heart Soundtrack Track 3: Modern Love
