A lifelong New Yorker, Andrew Kirschner has done various jobs--video editor, urban planner, shipper--before becoming a New York City social studies teacher. Always a superhero geek, he was inspired to create Ms. Infinity after working a second job as a cashier. He lives in Queens with his wife and three children.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm a father of three, and a social studies teacher in New York City. I'm subbing right now, looking for a permanent job. When I'm not subbing, a work in my family's paintbrush factory. That should be enough to keep anyone busy!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Professionally or ever? I remember writing stories at home when I was a kid. I even remember binding one with staples. This is the first time I really wrote a novel. However I have written numerous little unpublished stories.
