Who is A Twist of Noir?
I haven't chosen a pen name yet, perhaps you can help me choose one. Until I do, you may call me Kitty.

Why a Nom de Plume? 
From the time I was a small child I loved the idea of a secret identity! I like to keep an air of mystery about me and I enjoy the anonymity of being a writer.

What do you create?
I love rewriting my and other people's Life Adventures! Having experienced more in this lifetime than most people I know, I started feeling like a victim of circumstance. I wrote my first novel, First Shadows, to help me regain control and make sense of my life.
It is said that every story starts with one question, "What if...?"
I started First Shadows with the question, "What if I'd had the support and knowledge of a team that fought slavery? (Spoiler Alert!) Would things have ended differently?"
From that one question, The Knowing was born. Here is a synopsis: 
"A young man must choose between loyalty or bringing the truth about a horrific murder to light in the thrilling Noir mystery, First Shadows by "Kitty". When eighteen-year-old Erick Holt inherits an old auto-repair garage, he unwittingly becomes a catalyst in the lives of millions of young people. With pressure from his Trust to sell, and steady business suddenly on the decline, Erick must start making adult decisions. Looking to his best-friend and adopted brother Ansel RunningWolf, for help, they devise a plan to keep the Garage afloat. As he begins receiving more customers, Erick discovers that there is more going on in the sleepy desert town of Morley, than he first realized. When a young woman comes to him, begging refuge from Slavers, Erick thinks it’s a joke; until she goes missing. Found tortured and murdered, the girl’s story suddenly seems real. Although horrified and guilty for not doing more for the seemingly psychotic girl, Erick is at a loss as how to bring her murderer to justice with the little bits of evidence she left him before her disappearance.

Abducted from her home as a little girl, Angel only has memories of being a domestic slave. Moving from foster home, to foster home, Angel does not remember what love and care are; until she meets Erick Holt. After her friend is brutally murdered, Angel asks the only person she feels that she can trust to help her find her friend’s murderer. Erick readily agrees, but at what cost? When Angel becomes the prime suspect in the murder, Erick and his new team, The Knowing, must search deeper. Only the deeper they search, the more guilty Angel appears. How can they help Angel if they can’t discover her true identity? If they do, will it be too late?


With a masterfully woven plot, First Shadows is the the first novel in The ShadowLight Alliance Series. And what is better than a few added abilities, such as Psionics (telepathy, Psi-Ball battles, telekinesis, atmoskinesis, etc.), Shifting...plus some truly evil villains? 
I invite to you read each chapter (sent out as monthly episodes) and guess what is true life, and what is fiction; you may be surprised. :-) 

What do you gain from sharing your fiction?
As the creator of The ShadowLight Alliance Series, I hope to inspire my readers. I also hope to build a fan base, so I can continue sharing and writing.
