Meet the Author: Andrew Brumbach

Andrew BrumbachAndrew Brumbach grew up square in the hippie community of Eugene, Oregon, surrounded by artists and musicians and storytellers. He studied art in Texas, traded options in Chicago, and wandered as an expat through the neon neighborhoods of Tokyo. Somewhere along the way, he married the girl of his dreams and had four practically perfect kids, but never overcame his weakness for the power and transport of story.

Andy’s debut novel, THE EYE OF MIDNIGHT (Random House/Delacorte, Spring 2016), is a Middle Grade adventure. In the summer of 1929, two cousins named Maxine Campbell and William Battersea must brave the streets of New York City to recover an ancient mirror and rescue their grandfather from a cult of desert assassins.

Fun facts:

  • Favorite book growing up: THE GREAT BRAIN series by John D. Fitzgerald
  • Childhood aspiration: Part-time artist, part-time minister, part-time professional baseball player
  • Favorite time of day/place to write: Morning, on a deserted island with wi-fi
  • Book currently reading: THE LUMINARIES by Eleanor Catton
  • Favorite things to do: Travel, be with his kids, play golf
  • Favorite sports teams: Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Dodgers
  • Surprising personal fact: He narrowly survived the 1995 sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway
  • Greatest thing about being a 2016 debut author: After a long road to publication, he’s glad he’s not a 2017 (or 2018, or 2019) debut author
