The Infamous “Twist”

I asked my granddaughter what she enjoyed most about the series of books she is currently reading.

“That’s easy” she told me with a sparkle in her warm brown eyes. “Each one has an exciting twist.

Ah, yes. The unexpected. The change the reader hadn’t anticipated. 

I actually wrote my first book, Runaways, around just such a surprising event.

Some readers told me that the twist in The Choice was the fact that they knew what was coming, but didn’t think I would dare actually write about it.

And, so it goes. Each book must have one. 

Because we writers love to put that sparkle in our readers’ eyes.
