When writer Cornelia Funke writes on one of her new books, the 61-year-old is also guided by music. “I always listen to music that fits the text I’m currently writing,” said the bestselling author of the German Press Agency in Hamburg.
«I try to make time and the world present by listening to the music from the time.» Music is a powerful tool to remember an attitude to life.
«When I write” ink heart “I hear a lot of baroque music and troubadour music. In “Reckless” it’s more Franz Schubert or Peter Tchaikovsky. » For the second volume of «Drachenreiter», she heard the sounds of the jungle. The third will now play in Malibu, in the sea. «We come into contact with completely different noises. I probably have to listen to whale songs. » Funke has sold more than 20 million books worldwide.
