TEN TWISTS is a collection of short stories, all ending with the inevitable twist. Within the covers of this book you'll discover a variety of twists including the cliff hanger, the surprise, the poetic justice, and other twist endings. Some stories are light reading and offer a touch of romance, suspense, and maybe even a tad of whimsical humor. Others present a slightly more dramatic story line. A global pandemic helps launch "Angelika," into the world of rich and glamorous models. An unfortunate accident places her in a less desirable setting. In "Family Photos," Jerold Furgusson, an educator and avid photographer, under contract with the Philippine Government, unexpectedly meets distant family members. "The Hobo," takes you back to the time when vagabonds, also called hobos or tramps, used to travel from town-to-town, hopping freight trains. A bank is robbed on Halloween. It's now a case of 'who dun it'? A true wayfarer or a 'real-looking' hobo? "Little Lady," gets frustrated with Dad's complaints regarding the use of chemical sprays on flowers, vegetables, plants, and bugs. Christopher, a successful star, survives a horrific skydiving mishap then falls in love with nurse, "Katie". Three years later he returns in search of his love. "It's in the genes," Randy credits his parents for his life-long passion, in "Born to Dance." Mum's the word "In a World of Silence." Debra's Mom is hearing impaired and eventually loses her eyesight. A group of casino employees find themselves on a whimsical vacation as they sail together on "The Cruise." In "The Life of Lu Wang," Dexter interviews Lu, a prominent philanthropist and restaurateur, for a documentary featuring outstanding citizens in the Asian community. "A Short Love Story," exposes the summer romance between Frances Richards and Rick Barnes, an Air Force pilot.
