WANT A FREE SHORT STORY?
Thank you for stopping by! To show my appreciation, I want to send you a free short story featuring Finn Teller, the lead in my new corporate spy mystery series. This story is only available here!
Hi! I’m Twist (yes, it’s my real name) Phelan.
Yes, that’s me up in the corner. I’ve been brunette (lawyer years) and blonde (post-lawyer-living-on-a-boat years), but I think red suits me best: I’m half-Irish, passionate about the things I care about—writing! travel!—and can’t go out without first slathering on the sunscreen.
I write mystery novels and short stories, usually with a twist—sorry!—I hope you don’t see coming at the end. My protagonists strive to do right, within—or outside of—the system. If you like reading about characters who are professional to the core, but have a heart, too, and if you enjoy mysteries that make you think, then my stories may be for you! Check out the books here.
I also travel—a lot. I’ve flown almost 600,000 air miles to nearly 60 countries over the past 6 years. (My Finn Teller series takes place in countries around the world that I’ve visited.) Currently, I spend about half my time in the States and the other half, well, somewhere else. Along the way I’ve had extraordinary (and often hilarious) experiences, made mistakes that are just as spectacular, and acquired a lot of savvy and know-how when it comes to traveling the globe, which I will soon be sharing in a series of how-to travel books. Check out my latest travel stories and photos/videos on my blog.
