Editorial Reviews

Review

  • In-Depth Alternate World & Complex, Flawed Characters. A well thought-out world and story. - Amazon reviewer on March 30, 2017
  • Great Read!!! This was a great read with an interesting plot and well-developed characters. - Amazon reviewer on February 23, 2017
  • Excellent first installment and first novel! The combination of alternative history, current events relevancy, and cyberpunk technology in this story grabbed me right from the beginning. - Amazon reviewer on August 13, 2016
  • Great Techno Thriller. This is an amazing thrill ride from the start. - Amazon reviewer on June 26, 2016
  • Fascinating read. Already anxious for the sequel! The author did a great job of making an odd (potentially unlikeable) character seem charming and engaging. - Amazon reviewer on September 28, 2016
  • We may not be living in Broken Mirror's universe at this very moment, but this may not always be the case. As California and our universe belong on the map of the "real" world, so do Semiautonomous California and Mirror Resonance Syndrome belong on the map of a parallel universe. - Amazon reviewer on June 16, 2016

From the Author

on writing a character with a mental illness...
Mirror resonance syndrome (MRS) borrows elements from other mental disorders like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder. People with MRS also experience extreme emotional transference; they involuntarily feel what the people around them are feeling, strongly. This can lead to mental shut down, or blanking out, when their consciousness overloads and shuts down temporarily. Victor Eastmore, the main character, has suffered from MRS for years. Through medication and therapy, he maintains a tenuous grip on his sanity--until his grandfather dies under conditions Victor finds suspicious.

on the inspiration for Broken Mirror...
My cousin struggled with schizophrenia for years and died tragically while institutionalized. Several friends from childhood developed personality disorders in their teens or became addicted to drugs. I struggled with depression in my late teens and early 20s. It seems like many young people in my generation face uphill odds to simply lead normal lives. I wanted to show that struggle through my writing.

on writerly influences...
I think writers are enormously influenced by what we've read--both what we've enjoyed and what has troubled us. Throughout my teens, I couldn't get enough of Stephen King and Clive Barker, not for the gore and splatter, but for the vividly imagined and daring worlds they created. It tells me that readers have an appetite for new, different, and surprising settings and characters and it encourages me to take risks. 

Conversely, I recently re-read Isaac Asimov's Foundation Series and I realized some of my writing was in reaction to his--for example, what if posthumous messages were more hurtful than helpful? Or take the TV show Fringe--what if crossing over wasn't as easy as stepping through a portal--what if the blood price was quantum suicide? So in some respects, a work of fiction is in dialogue with those that came before. 

In Broken Mirror, I hope that I'm channeling Frank Herbert's penchant for writing grand and historical battle of forces, Kim Stanley Robinson's exactitude when it comes to realism and scientific plausibility, and Haruki Murakami's sparse filaments of magic that yank on readers' curiosity.
