    Through the Shadow Glass by Arpad Nagy

    Through the Shadow Glass by Arpad Nagy

    Some children explore the strange movement and reflections in a mirror. Is it a recently deceased loved one saying their last goodbyes or something more sinister?

    Arpad Nagy is a 50yr old proud Hungarian Canadian throwback romantic man who loves to write. After sustaining work injuries and being relegated to desk work, he dove into writing and has been doing so full-time since 2021. His passion is fiction writing, and his niche is romantic fiction, although he writes in many genres, including personal essays, memoirs, pop culture, and anecdotal stories about being a father, husband, and former careers as a  chef, oil man, and civil construction. He is an editor for four publications, three for nonfiction and one for short fiction at Medium, where he has nearly 400 published pieces.
