BLOG TOUR - MUSIC IN BANISH - BANISH by AUSTRALIAN AUTHOR NICOLA MARSH - YA SUPERNATURAL THRILLER - HARLEQUIN TEEN


Today on Novels On The Run I have my stop on the BANISH blog tour . You can read a guest post from Australian author, Nicola Marsh for the Music in Banish. You can see Ronan has very different music taste to Alyssa. Love seeing a young guy character with a more unique interest in music.

Enjoy!

Music in Banish 



One of the things Alyssa loves about Ronan is his music background.

They met through his music, with Alyssa filming and interviewing Ronan for a music assignment at school, where he tutors part-time.

Ronan’s a saxophonist god and a jazz geek. His band, The Dizzy’s, is named after his idol, Dizzy Gillespie. He plays in cool jazz clubs. He records his own music.

And one of his clips sets off a chain of events for Alyssa that leads to intrigue and danger and murder!

Alyssa and Ronan’s music tastes are worlds apart.

Here are Alyssa’s & Ronan’s favourite songs:
