The Black Hen Playlist


Musically conjure up some magic one final time with music that inspired or was featured in the upcoming novel The Black Hen, the third installment in the Esoteric Alchemy series. I love using music both as a tool for inspiration while writing or to evoke a feeling or emotion for the reader by including it within the story itself. Music can elevate or correlate with the mood, energy or character's emotions within the text.


Below you'll find a Spotify playlist for The Black Hen, followed by the full list of songs and the chapter they are matched with (some songs aren't available on Spotify) and even a few extras that fit the Esoteric Alchemy milieu. Enjoy!
