Teri Brown's Born of Illusion is an imaginative, detailed and truly enchanting story about Anna, a teen who may or may not be the illegitimate daughter of Harry Houdini, and her struggle to control her growing powers to see the future. Secrets, love and danger will take readers on a whirlwind of an adventure set during New York's Jazz Age. Author Teri Brown is here today to discuss the research process for the story, how it all led to the creation of the book, and sheds some light on the sequel!
Born of Illusion was hands down the most fun I’ve ever had researching a book. I got to interview magicians, watch reels of 1920’s NYC footage, listen to jazz, read biographies on one of the greatest escape artists who ever lived and delve into the facts and myths behind the oldest and one of the most secretive paranormal investigative clubs in the world.
