About SJK & Reality with a Twist

untitledSomehow when I sit to write a story, my mind wanders off to might have beens, or even more so, to what ifs. All authors do this of course. It’s the basis of fiction to imagine. But I can’t seem to stay in what is commonly accepted as reality, even when I start in a contemporary setting in an ordinary town.

through-the-cracks-cover-front-bright-very-final-published-Lydia is hanging out at her mom’s shop, bored like any teen would be under restriction from her shrink – safer than safe – but when she hears the shopkeeper next door crying, she falls into a whole new level of trouble, right through a still-locked door. Twisty indeed! Seems her sensitive soul radiates compassion a bit differently than the average girl’s. And she finds an extraordinary friend, too.  Although it’s all perfectly normal that her mom is freaking out. At least Lydia’s spared from slipping immediately into oblivion, but what else will she find, THROUGH THE CRACKS?

Feeling Human front coverwJac’s body is pulled into a vortex between dimensions and his consciousness is taking a wild ride, observing the thoughts and feelings of his fellow human beings from the inside. He can’t even choose where or when to go. He transfers each time his host touches someone else’s skin or hair with their own. Though his life is well-grounded on a Montana ranch – with relatable troubles like abandonment by his mom – he meets a very twisty twist in, FEELING HUMAN.

Likeness front cover final (2)Charlie and Emmaline are slogging through their work-a-day lives in a marketing department in Seattle. They embrace regular office antics like inside jokes and quirky routines. But when their creative ad campaign lands them on a World-wide Pharmaceutical Conference stage, their product sends attendees on a bizarre romp with pseudo-Charlies and semi-Emmalines. Twisted mayhem ensues when their promo drug, Assimilaire, goes beyond easing social anxiety by making people feel the same as others, and makes everyone actually become like each other. Or like the unusual Charlie and Emmaline, to be precise. There’s plenty of Seattle flavor mixed with a good measure of thought-provoking social commentary in, LIKENESS.

Along with my Reality with a Twist novels, this place is a forum for other real and twisty thoughts, findings, facts, stories and photos. Aliens, unique creatives, invention, odd or abstract images, interdimensional travel, nature spirits, intuitive knowledge, time travel, all kinds of speculation are welcome here. So hold on to your hat. You never know when this rollercoaster might hit the corkscrew track. Whoo hoo!
