Joni Rodgers was a volunteer with the relief effort after Hurricane Katrina when she had the idea for The Hurricane Lover. The novel came to life over a long, slow period – a whirl of ideas, each falling into place day by day. Very often those insights come in the form of music – for the nature of her characters and for the tumultuous arc of the story itself. Joni Rodgers is at the red blog today drumming up a storm with her Undercover Soundtrack.

I’ve been a fan of Joni’s since discovering Boxing the Octopus about a decade ago–first blog I followed 🙂 So nice to read about her here!
Hi Jenny! What a brilliant name – trust Joni to come up with something quirky. I’ll have to see if it’s still around. Lovely that you’re old ether-friends
