Chikamso C. Efobiabout this book: From when I was a child, I always dreamt of writing my own inspirational novel but as I grew up, I found myself procrastinating and for many days which eventually turned to many months and years, I sat on the sofa and found solace in watching TV shows and doing everything else but opening my laptop to start writing my book.
Finally, I came to the point of realisation in January 2015, that if I did not start, it would continue to remain an aspiration. So, I picked up my laptop and started to write. The beautiful thing is that once I began to write, the words could not stop flowing. I found myself writing on the train during my commute to work, at the railway station and on the odd days, when the battery of my mobile devices ran out, I brought out my notebook from my handbag and carried on writing.
6 months later, the draft manuscript was ready.
I got the inspiration for the title 3 years ago when I went on a personal development training sponsored by the company I work for. The facilitator of the training, Stuart Thomas, asked us to state that one unique thing about ourselves and I told him I had a unique way of turning negative situations into positives. As we kept conversing, he just blurted out "Twisted in a Positive Way" and the name has stuck with me since then.
Twisted in a Positive Way is an inspiring story based on the life of a young girl, Adaugo who faces difficult odds. The loss of a loved one and navigating cultural expectations and gender roles are major themes in this personal narrative documenting the growth and learning of a young girl with big dreams. As Adaugo listens to the still small voice within her, her growth from a young girl in boarding school to a precocious brave woman is studded with precious gems of divine insight. Her journey is one that any person, young or old will learn from as it illustrates the beauty and triumph of dreaming big and never giving up.
Although this book is also listed under women's fiction, it would appeal to anyone who would love to read a remarkable personal story on love, courage, determination and never giving up in the face of difficult odds.
I have received emails from readers who told me that they found it difficult to put down. One reader said that it left her with a big smile on her face.
I hope you enjoy the novel. Please remember to leave a review.
