Mirror Mash (Author Interview)



Mirror Mash looks like an exciting story.  Can you tell us a little about Jordan?

Jordan is a 14 year old boy, that is trying to cope the best way he knows how during a global pandemic.  He has become more and more introverted.  He is rebellious to his mom and to make matter worse his father disappeared while working on a cure for the pandemic.

Mirror Mash looks like it’s a relatable story for today's youth.  What age group was the book written for? 

I wrote the book for my grandson and my son, and both are 14.  I wanted to target kids between 10-14.


Any plans to turn it into a series?

I am contemplating that now.  More than likely it will be a series.

That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us a little about it?

I work with an amazing illustrator.  I give her the story and she designs the illustrations according to the story.  She gets the vision


What inspired you when writing Mirror Mash?   

This story speaks to what the kids have been going through since the pandemic. Some kids were introverted and staying in their rooms prior to the pandemic.  But I am a witness to my grandson and son staying in their rooms losing themselves in videos games.


How did you come up with the story in Mirror Mash?

When I was going through titles Mirror Mash stuck out for me, and my son loved it.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Mirror Mash?

No really.  I knew what I wanted to write. I had it written down.  I worked with a editor/story writer to bring it home.


What do you like to do when not writing?

I work. I have worked for over 25 years for the federal government.  I also love to jog and spend time with my family.
