Michaelk: Royowen called me 'The Twister' in a recent review, so I thought I would pick a profile pic that reflected that. :)
November 29, 2015 at 9:07AM
    michaelcahill: I'm guessing we should be thinking knife in the gut rotating and not Chubby Checker "Let's Do the Twist", yes?
    November 30, 2015 at 6:38PM
    Michaelk: Knife in the gut sounds good to me, but I'm thinking that he was referring to the fact that most of my stories end with some type of twist. :)
