Author Laurel O’Donnell shares this insight into the book’s creation:
My children were young when I wrote this and we were deeply wound up in watching superheroes. Batman, Spiderman. The entire premise for Midnight Shadow was what would it take for someone, a very normal person, to don a mask and try to defeat evil? What would push a person, or character, to do that? I came up with the Midnight Shadow as a type of Robin Hood hero. He stole from the rich and gave to the poor. In this story, Bria attempts to emulate her fairy tale hero and in doing so comes face to face with the hero. Enjoy reading Midnight Shadow!
