Beside the Music by B.J. KnappCan the act of mailing a fan letter change a life?  Brenda Dunkirk didn’t think so.  She also didn’t think 80s metal star Keith Kutter would have actually read her letter.  Watching him stand in the rain on her patio and compose a new song is something she never imagined.

Brenda thinks she’s the luckiest woman in the world when Keith’s band, Hydra, and their entourage declares her home as their base camp while recording their comeback album.  She fantasizes about late night lyric writing sessions at her kitchen table and being the first one to hear all the new songs.  She is confident that with her help the band will get back on top where they belong.  Swept up in the glamour of being the rock and roll muse, Brenda risks her already faltering marriage.  Tim, her husband, walks out on her and Hydra’s chaos, and to make matters worse her boss is threatening to fire her if she doesn’t get her act together at work.  The band will not leave until the album is done--it could be another month or it could be another year. 

Ultimately Brenda must choose between the secure contentment of her marriage or the allure of rock and roll.  She must decide: is it possible to be one man’s wife and another man’s muse?
