Ever since I was a kid, music has been central to my creative process. Whether building an airplane model kit in the basement of my parents' home; drawing my own comic books late into the night in my childhood bedroom; or writing my very

Ray Bradbury and I shared in common a deep love and appreciation of libraries. Last spring, after a run of speaking engagements at public schools across the country, I noticed a disconcerting trend at high schools. Librarian positions were being eliminated at a frightening

I first encountered the words of Bradbury in utero—my Dad read the freak show frescoes from the 1951 collection The Illustrated Man aloud to my Mom while I was still a month from arrival. I grew up, like many Gen X adolescents, nerding out to Dungeons and Dragons, the spandex bravado of KISS, the space opera allure of Star Wars and, of course, the fantastic fictions of one Ray Douglas
It's gone now, destroyed by bulldozers in the early days of January, 2015. In its place now stands a garish modern monstrosity of a house. But Ray Bradbury's home of more than 50 years, and his storied basement office, will never be forgotten.

When I am writing, music is seldom a mental distraction. Many writers simply
