Phobias About Mirrors

Hello all,
Last week the subject of mirrors arose in a couple of conversations, and I quickly learned that some of my friends were creeped-out by them. I understood this since I had similar feelings after watching Damian Omen years ago. I couldn't look at my reflection without half expecting to find a cloaked figure standing behind me.  Luckily, I moved past it. 

As a writer, I found it fascinating to learn that some people never do. One of my friends said she refused to look into the mirror at night if she wakes to use the bathroom. Another person imagined a strange face staring back at her from an alternate dimension behind the mirror, every time she looked in one.

The above phobias and fears got me to wondering if anyone else shared similar feelings about mirrors. If so, it would be interesting to know what they are.  Until next time, happy writing. 

Recommended Book THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER (read review)

However, I recently decided to break with tradition and expand my posts to anything that interests me. Since reading is one of my favorite pass times, I thought it might help other authors to post my review about their books.

I just finished reading THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER. It's the first book in  a YA Fantasy story about a girl who lost her memory following a tragic accident. As the only survivor, her family was forced to move to another state to escape the trauma. Upon arriving in her new home, Mara (the MC) began seeing things that made her question her sanity. Then, she met a mysterious boy, Noah, who seemed to know more about her than he let on. With his help, they embarked on a twisting and turning journey that led to more questions than answers. Needless to say, I got through the story in two days. This is unusual, since it normal…
