About the Author

Jamie Klinger-Krebs is an author, designer and marketing professional. Her nearly 20-year writing career includes trade publications, magazines, newspapers, two novels and one very snarky blog. As a self-described nerd, you can usually find Jamie with her nose in a book or tapping away on a computer. But, when she's not feeding her brain, you just might find her out on the water paddle boarding with her daughter (and the dog) or photographing trees. (It's a weird obsession, but trees are cool.)

Readers who choose On Burning Mirrors for its insights into same-sex relationships and marital struggles will find it a powerful emotionally-driven exploration of love, friendship, closely-held memories and unexpected futures. The novel is particularly recommended reading not just for fans of gay fiction; but for those outside the genre who can anticipate an emotional story of the processes of coming together, moving apart, and forging new connections.

- D. Donovan - Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

On Burning Mirrors is a deeply thought-provoking and affecting story that will linger in readers' mind for quite some time. Issues such as sexual prejudice, addictions, social stigma, and mental health are dealt with quite well. All in all, a worthy read.

Klinger-Krebs succinctly portrays William's ambivalence, in particular; after discovering his wife's affair, William expresses, rather adroitly, that "as much as I hate her right now, I loved her one hundred times more." Indeed, the book is at its best when it explores the mixed feelings that make relationships what they are.

What this story lacks in suspense, it makes up with an honest investigation of love and loss.

- Kirkus Reviews

While primarily a love story, On Burning Mirrors also addresses important social and career issues like sexual gender preferences, gender bias and drug usage in the music industry, along with a needed wariness of media and newspaper reporting. This is a novel that keeps readers thinking while they are enjoying the story...and even after they have closed the book.

Jamie Klinger-Krebs writes with the simplicity of language that only a very skilled writer can use and the narrative flows with grace, featuring vivid descriptions that capture details of the story without sacrificing the main elements of plot. There are twists in the story that readers won't see coming. Here is a tale of love and loyalty and sexuality, a tale of secrets that is crafted to keep the reader mesmerized.
