Zydeco
noun
a type of traditional dance music of the Cajun people of the southern U.S. <http://www.onelook.com/?w=zydeco&ls=a>

Like a lot of people, I have mild tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and sometimes it sounds like very faint music.  It’s no problem for me as long as I have a fan going when I go to sleep.  I recently wrote a character with a traumatic brain injury and decided to give her tinnitus that sounds like Zydeco music played through an overhead speaker.

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
