Valowlie asked Rick Riordan:

Hiya, Uncle Rick! Hope you and your family are happy and well. I was wondering whether you're the type of author who writes better in complete silence or with background music? And if it's the latter, did you have a playlist or specific songs specially listened to when you were writing the PJO and HoO books?

Rick Riordan Sometimes I listen to instrumental music like jazz, but mostly it's silence. Too hard to concentrate otherwise.
