In September 2017, brothers Nicholas McConnaughay and Scott Moore collaborated to create the Mishmashers brand. The mission statement was simple – create a viable platform to share their hard work and passion for storytelling, and to build from that.
On April 2018, Scott Moore and Nicholas McConnaughay published their novel The Canes Files, a novel that pitted their respective characters against one another – Scott’s character Sanec Barker is a crooked detective for the Marybeth Police Department, whereas McConnaughay’s Vulpecula Noel is a troubled rogue investigator, in search of challenge and his own gratification, a fact he realizes could come at a price. The sequel The Canes Awaken was released in March 2019, whereas a third novel is due out later next year.
Aside from their collaborations, McConnaughay and Scott Moore have their own solo projects, which include Scott’s Wardens and The Uprising series’s, and McConnaughay’s The Aeonian Fantasy (The Red Flux, Katalene the Hollow, and soon, Roxwale).
Beyond Mishmashers.com, the brand includes an entertainment website called Mashers.Club for reviews and entertainment-related editorials, a $3.99 subscription service called Mighty Mishmashers for access to many of their written novels, and there’s new ventures being pursued all the time.
