But who is David McLain? The newest Mirror World author is a bit of a mystery, but we asked him to do an interview and he said yes, so here goes:
So David, where do you find inspiration for your novels?
The inspiration for the Time Traveller’s Resort and Museum most came from people I know, and from literary references that are important to me. I suppose I could have told the story of my life from beginning to end, but the parts of my life that I wanted to write about are not exactly served well by sampling chronicling who they are. I wanted to chronicle who they aspired to be.
Other than writing, what do you do in your spare time?
Every time I finish a book I end up building a model, basically because I have no idea what to do with myself. I also have a dog, and a fish, and a cat that I tolerate.
Do you have a ‘day job’?
I have more than one, actually. I don’t like to talk about those days when I put on my dark rimmed glasses and a blue suit and go out to the office as mild mannered employee David McLain. I preferred people picture me when I where my underwear over my pants and go out as writer man.
Are there other authors that you try and emulate or take inspiration from?
I can probably say Douglas Adams without shocking anyone. I’ve read roughly half of William Shakespeare’s Work, all of JD Salinger, and most of Jane Austen and John Steinbeck. I’ve read a great deal about King Arthur too, which you can probably tell from reading the book.
Tell us about your new release:
The Time Traveller’s Resort and Museum is the story of a time traveller who falls in love with three men: One from the past, one from the present, and one from the future. She misjudges them all. It’s also the story of how a myth becomes reality, and reality seems to fade away until it’s a myth. (I probably should have thought of that last bit earlier, it sounds good, doesn’t it?)
