Fictional tales are surprisingly powerful, but only those with real eyes, realize, real lies. As an amateur writer, my goal in putting this publication together was to build the reader's interest up thinking one way and close it out with a sudden twist in a different direction. The beautiful lies of novels, movies, and TV stories can have that effect. I hope these short tales were thought provoking for you. For me, I used this as a way of exploring new approaches to this age old craft as I shared these twisted tales of life's stories Tony Carnegie.
