Twisted:  a. Creepy, unusual     b. Creatively ‘altered’ (‘twisting words’) 

Reflections:  a. The act of reflecting or the state of being reflected     b. Serious thinking or careful consideration  


Inspired by personal and family experiences, Twisted Reflections weaves 2 fiction and 6 nonfiction dark short stories that take readers to diverse places like the Holy Land, Brussels and Paris.

At once unsettling and fascinating, gentle and cruel, imaginary and real, the stories ultimately connect across time. Through the dichotomies of presence-absence, childhood-adulthood, thought-action, and extremism-indifference, questions of memory, identity, home, faith and forgiveness are brought to the surface.
