Writing “The End of the Magical Kingdom” has been a strange and eye-opening journey into the real world – a world I have always feared, grieved for, and never quite fit into. It is my hope that with this series, we can all begin to speak each other’s language once again and find our lost souls. Love can be stronger than hate and Happily Ever Afters are always possible, even in the darkest of hours.
I have a few people to thank for all their hard work in helping me realize my vision.
Sebastian Sabo, a wonderful artist who created the tri-colored book covers and character concepts.
Dahnell, Antonio and Benjamin Davi for their excellent 2D cartoon interpretations of our main characters.
Rob Donovan (aka snikt5) for his assistance with the Map of Cadabra.
Karla Fetrow (The Icelandic Accord) and Richard Fulgham (The Hogs of Cold Harbor) for being my most loyal supporters, even in those days when I questioned whether or not I could write for a living. Their support of my early books convinced me to give it a try and abandon the cubicle nightmare for the far more fulfilling life of a hippie artist. They are not just my friends, but arguably the two best writers alive on the planet today. Their high intellect and appreciation of deep literature make their praise for my work a special honor. I’ll never forget the first time I met Richard. He made a public post at Writers.net (a very hostile environment full of ultra-competitive writers) saying that he just read Attempted Rapture and that he considered it “great literature.” At that point in time, I had no idea if I was a “serious writer” or a hack. His out-of-nowhere praise gave me the motivation to believe in myself and pursue my one true passion in life. It just goes to show you, you never know when your kind words will change someone’s life. Karla has been my friend, confidant and writing partner for over 10 years. We have told so many stories together and have learned so much from each other. My muse, my psychic partner. We will be forever linked.
My parents for encouraging me to follow my dream. They gave me everything and asked nothing in return. I never had a mentor or a teacher that “changed my life.” No professional writer ever offered to help me, nor did any pastor or minister take an interest in grooming me for public speaking. I have always been self-taught. I had no choice but to be a lone wolf. My teachers were books, movies and a hard drive of thousands of short stories I never published, but which helped me define my view of the world. But I do owe so much to my parents for giving me the opportunity to learn my craft at a leisurely pace and also help develop my writing voice thanks to their creativity, their strong faith, and their powerful words.
My wife for always being my best friend and inspiration.
Actor Vanessa Verduga (Justice Woman) and writer Jennifer Lawson-Perez (Save Me Salvador) for reminding me to be a proud Latino, to develop thicker skin, and to embrace the entrepreneurial spirit. If I don’t believe in myself, who else will?
Nick Upperman for being my best guy friend and my first and biggest fan.
Want to buy Warren a drink for his charms? In exchange, you can sit back and read 20 years worth of pathos and delusion as Mitchell Warren shares his Author Interviews from 2003 up until the present day. You’ve been warned…his interviews get progressively weirder.
