Twyla Turner


I am a brand new author. I wrote my first story in the 3rd grade and fell in love with writing. I even minored in Creative Writing in college, which in hindsight I should've majored in it, for all my degree has done for me. But throughout the years I haven't had the discipline to sit down and write. And finally being "between jobs" and living with my parents...again, I finally had the time to write. And surprisingly, it was great and a bit easier than I thought. It felt phenomenal to get so wrapped up in my characters. I even teared up a bit at the end. I'm such a dork! Anyway that's me.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
The first time I wrote a story of my own creation was in the 3rd grade. The story idea came from a poster that I had in my room. The experience never left me. I rewrote that story in high school and my teacher liked it so much that she told me that it would make a great animated movie. So when I went to college, I minored in Creative Writing. My major was Radio/TV, I also wanted to be the next Oprah. But I should have realized then that writing was my true love, because even then my Creative Writing classes were my favorites and I got the best grades in them.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well in 2009 I moved to Long Beach, California. I fell in love with the little city, which is the backdrop for my novel. But while in SoCal, I had a really rough time meeting men. I basically went nearly 4 years without being asked on a single date. It was frustrating. And I didn't get it. So my main character deals with the same issues, but luckily for her, she met someone spectacular. I on the other hand, moved to Arizona.
