Lindsay, Nick, Chris, Amy and Paul are just a few of the kids in the neighborhood that enjoy each other’s company and like to hang out together. From the usual antics that preteens enjoy, like playing in the graveyard, trick or treating, and celebrating birthdays, the kids find themselves in some unique situations that lead to unexpected ending twists.
Spooky Twisties I offers 13 tales of terror that will grab you from the start, and leave you with chilling surprise endings. Adventures are speckled with humorous dialogue to frightening calls for help in working through their series of unusual encounters. Even though the chapters have individual story lines, many are intertwined with characters that are not so likable. For instance, Creepy Guy and Dan the Security Guard seem to have a ‘fixation’ for Lindsay and Amy who are best friends. Then there is old Mrs. Miller who has seemed to live on the street forever, but has found a secret to anti-aging. ‘Easter eggs’ or ‘hidden references’ mesh, and just when you think you’re headed towards a ‘fairy-tale’ ending, a strange unforeseen chilling conclusion occurs leaving the reader saying, “I didn’t see that happening!” No happily ever after endings here.
I’ve lived my entire life in western PA and the majority of my working years were as a Systems Engineer for a large corporation. When my sons were born, I took a hiatus from work, and tutored math and reading and substituted in local schools. I returned to the workforce and retired a few years ago.
Except for writing a little poetry in college, I am a new writer who started writing seriously a few years ago.
Spooky Twisties I began with one story about a group of kids that go out to play their annual game of ghosts in the graveyard. This story eventually led to others and became the Spooky Twisties Series.
