About the author

Ada Prell

Ada Prell has lived in Boston, the deep South, and Los Angeles, but the inspiration for this story comes from her current home in the high elevations of Colorado, surrounded by imposing mountains, deep glacial lakes, regal trees, pure air, fierce weather, and spellbinding wildlife.  In these wilds, she has been enthralled with stories of the varied mountain inhabitants from the recent and distant past, especially those whose lives were dwarfed by the judgments of niggling minds, inhabitants whose voices were subdued and stifled by the petty and powerful. 

​​​​​​​The historical fiction House of Mirrors: Life in the Demimonde is her first novel, written in retirement after 32 rewarding years of teaching literature, film, and composition.  She lives with her husband Rick and a long line of rescue dogs, currently starring Molly Brown and Jack Kerouac.
