I came up with most of the ideas for my book while taking my son on our daily walks each afternoon. It was just me, my son, my BOB jogging stroller, an old iPod and the hills of La Habra Heights. Since music was such an important part of my creative process, I wanted to give credit to the songs that really helped me along when I needed inspiration.
