A Matter of Fate (Fate Series, #1)By Heather Lyons Release Date: 08/30/12Summary from Goodreads:
Chloe Lilywhite struggles with all the normal problems of a typical seventeen-year-old high school student. Only, Chloe isn't a normal teenage girl. She's a Magical, part of a secret race of beings who influence the universe. More importantly, she's a Creator, which means Fate mapped out her destiny long ago, from her college choice, to where she will live, to even her job. While her friends and relatives relish their future roles, Chloe resents the lack of say in her life, especially when she learns she's to be guarded against a vengeful group of beings bent on wiping out her kind. Their number one target? Chloe, of course.
That's nothing compared to the boy trouble she's gotten herself into. Because a guy she's literally dreamed of and loved her entire life, one she never knew truly existed, shows up in her math class, and with him comes a twin brother she finds herself inexplicably drawn to.
Chloe's once unyielding path now has a lot more choices than she ever thought possible.

About the AuthorHeather Lyons has been putting stories to paper since she was a little girl. Her first "published" book was a humorous retelling of The Princess and the Pauper. After detours in archaeology and teaching, she is now writing and living in Southern California with her husband and three sons. She likes cupcakes, baseball, hockey, reading, and collecting far too many handbags.
I freely admit I’m obsessed with music. I listen to it all day long, have multiple iPods, and am always buying and downloading new songs, not to mention going to concerts. I LOVE discovering new artists! So it comes as no surprise that when I write, I’m pretty fanatical about my playlists. I’ll listen to some songs over and over until I hear them in my sleep, just to get a scene/character right. And I’ll often listen to the playlists I build even when I’m not writing, just so I can keep a feel for what I need to get back to.
While A Matter of Fate has a pretty lengthy playlist (it’s kind of embarrassing, but there are over 100 songs on my AMOF playlist!), I wanted to share several songs (in the order that they were used) that were really crucial to building the story and/or characters within. I don’t always take the words to each song at face value—they don’t have to match the scenes/characters perfectly, but the mood of the song is crucial.
