SK Waller has always written. Besides books, she has written articles, essays, music, song lyrics, and poetry. She also owns a weblog that she has maintained for 11 years, usually posting daily. Her books are chiefly fiction that include equal doses of humor and drama. She writes about music and musicians probably because she is a professional musician who was raised in a family of professional musicians, from Vaudeville to opera and jazz to rock and roll. In her family's English past the Wallers were court musicians and poets who include Sir Edmund Waller ("Go, Lovely Rose") while the other side of the family was made up of writers who include greats Mark Twain and Alexander Woollcott. Between the paternal musical genes and the maternal literary genes, writing about music was the natural and most obvious path for her to take.
