Mirrors have always held an element of fascination and fear for me.
They show us who we are, but they can also be portals to another world.
When I began writing Darke Music, the second book in my Darke Paranormal Investigations series, I knew I wanted to include some spooky mirrors in my fictional Asch Institute of Opera.
Why? Well, here’s where you get a bit of my own history in the story. I studied vocal performance at the University of Toronto, and the building had a basement warren of practice rooms for the students to use. Each room had a piano so that students could find their notes, and they also had mirrors on the walls, so that we could check our posture and make sure we were singing properly.
There was something about those mirrors that I just didn’t like. Maybe it was because I was in the basement of an old building and my imagination got carried away. Maybe I was sensing the emotions of students from long ago, their frustration and their desire to do well. Whatever the reason, those mirrors make an appearance in Darke Music, and the effect on the students is not a good one.
Please join me at the Asch Institute of Opera. Just beware that if you glance into the practice room mirrors, you may see more than your own reflection.
DARKE MUSIC is now available.
