A. L. Collinsabout this book: First of all, Thank You for taking the time to read about my novel Twined! I really enjoyed writing this YA supernatural thriller and really hope you enjoy reading it as well.
Twined is about a girl named Avalin Marsh who witnessed her mother murder a women in the kitchen of their home when she was just eleven years old. Her mother has since been institutionalized and Avalin has had to grow up fast. Her life is full of questions and uncertainties. One day in high school a classmate names Albert catches her attention. He is handsome, mysterious and a bit eccentric, however oddly he knows a tremendous amount about Avalin! He seems to have the answers to all of Avalin's questions. It's not what it seems though,and now Avalin needs to make some tough choices that could have dire consequences!
This is my first YA supernatural novel. I'm very proud of it because the premise is fresh, unique and different. There are twist and turns that you won't see coming. The title Twined refers to the type of being that Albert and several others in the small town of Rowan Springs, Michigan are. You'll need to read the book to find out more about that!
The cover shows Avalin as a closed off and for the most part lost teenager. It's great to see how she progresses and opens up later in the book. She is sarcastic and snarky, yet the kind of character you'll want to root for. She's not your typical female lead, that's for sure!
Being that the book is fiction, the only researching that I did was setting the geographical area where the story takes place... Rowan Springs, Michigan. There is alot of history from the area in the late 1800's that is important to the current day storyline.
I'm sorry very thankful and grateful to the many readers who have written me and expressed their opinions on my book and writing style. With the second book in the Twined series "Embers" being released soon, the excitement is really starting to build! I really love my readers, fans and bloggers. They have helped to really open my eyes to what readers really want in a book. Hopefully I can continue to meet their expectations!
