About Jenny Twist
Jenny Twist was born in York and brought up in the West Yorkshire mill town of Heckmondwike, the eldest grandchild of a huge extended family.
She left school at fifteen and went to work in an asbestos factory. After working in various jobs, including bacon-packer and escapologist’s assistant (she was The Lovely Tanya), she returned to full-time education and did a BA in history, at Manchester and post-graduate studies at Oxford.
She stayed in Oxford working as a recruitment consultant for many years and it was there that she met and married her husband, Vic.
In 2001 they retired and moved to Southern Spain where they live with their rather eccentric dogs and cat. Besides writing, she enjoys reading, knitting and attempting to do fiendishly difficult logic puzzles.
Since moving to Spain she has written four novels and numerous short stories.
Four of her books have been given 5 star reviews by the esteemed review site, Readers’ Favorite.
In July 2018 she was awarded the coveted TOP FEMALE AUTHOR award in Fantasy/Horror/Paranormal/Science Fiction by The Authors Show

Tilly wakes up in the dark, alone and very frightened. She finds she is in a strange room inexplicably furnished in 1940s style. However did she get here? Has she somehow slipped into the past? Has she been kidnapped? Of one thing she is absolutely certain, she has never seen this place in her life before. Tilly and her fellow experimental subjects appear to be getting younger.Can the same experiment be repeated for Tilly's beloved husband so that he can recover from a stroke? Tilly thinks it can and she will move heaven and earth to make sure it happens.A charming and thought-provoking story full of reminiscences of a bygone age, All in the Mind also deals with the dilemmas posed by new developments in a society whose culture is geared to the idea that the natural span of a human life is three-score years and ten.All in the Mind is a fascinating tale exploring the human capacity to overcome any obstacle, no matter how great, as long as you believe you can.Tilly is part of an experiment working on a cure for Alzheimer's disease. She and most of the other patients taking part in the experiment seem to make a full recovery, but there is a strange side effect.Review from S. T.One of those great ‘What if…?” storiesThis is a sweet love story with a truly novel twist. Tilly and Johnny have been separated by both Tilly’s advancing Alzheimer’s and Johnny’s stroke. Then Tilly becomes a subject of a ground-breaking experiment and ‘awakens’ from the disease. Eager to help Johnny recover from his own illness, Tilly enlists the help of the medical team who treated her and takes husband Johnny back to their old home to give him the same treatment. However, neither they nor the scientists running the experiment would ever have predicted the long-term effects of the treatment. By the end of the book, you’ll feel like you know Tilly and Johnny personally, as if you could step through their back door and be transported to their younger days in 1940s England. ‘All in The Mind’ is the kind of sweet story that makes you fervently wish it could be true.

Only one came home.
He left behind the love of his life and his precious mandolin.
Then came the letter . . .the letter that changed everything.
This is the story of how Nick returned to Franco’s Spain on the brink of the outbreak of WWII on a quest to rescue his lost love.
“A powerfully evocative story about an idealistic young soldier-musician who goes off to fight for Spain in the Civil War, where he meets Rosa – a young Spanish woman who saves his life and steals his heart.
For an afternoon of delightful escapism, I can’t recommend this great collection enough. Well done Ms Twist. More please!” Manic Scribbler
"The Minstrel Boy" is set in the 1930s, during the time of the Spanish Civil War and the events leading to World War II. It's the story of a love affair between an idealistic young Englishman and a strong and realistic young Spanish woman. Jenny Twist's knowledge of the time and her great talent for drawing character and detail make the tale unforgettable.” M. Thornburg
Nobody ever goes upstairs in Margaret’s house. So what is making the strange thumping noises up there? And why is there a toy rabbit under the kitchen table?
Margaret’s Ghost is just one of a collection of short stories consisting mainly of horror and science fiction, ranging from a classic gothic tale – Jack Trevellyn – to the Wyndhamesque Victim of Fortune, and the modern Waiting for Daddy, with its spine-chilling twist.
There is also the occasional excursion into romance with A Castle in Spain and Jess’s Girl.
But most of these tales take you to a place which is not quite as it seems.
It’s bedtime now. Time to go upstairs. Time to take a look.
Just one look.
WARNING: Do not exceed the stated dose.
What if aliens were to invade our planet, stealthily and determinedly, in order to rid it of its human population and prepare it for the needs of their own reptilian race? Would they come surging out of their spaceships, bent on the immediate murder of everyone in their path? Not if they were smart enough to have reached our solar system in the first place. Instead, they'd transport themselves to the seats of government power and see to it that we did away with ourselves, using our own methods.
What if this has already happened?
Beware the President’s Hair
When Amanda’s mother drags her shouting and protesting into Marlene’s hair salon to cut off her beautiful but dangerous hair, no one could have known the far-reaching consequences of a haircut. But when Marlene sells the shorn locks to a famed wig-maker, the whole world is placed in jeopardy.
Lenny first began to suspect there was something very strange about Gwendoline the day the white bull charged through the camp site, threatening to kill everyone in its path.
Perhaps what happened next was just coincidence, but then there were the strange deaths of the policemen at the protest march.
After that things just got out of control.
Gwendoline le jour où le taureau blanc a traversé le camping, menaçant de tuer tout le
monde sur son passage.
Peut-être que ce qui s'est passé ensuite n'était qu'une coïncidence, mais il y a eu ensuite
la mort étrange des policiers lors de la manifestation.
Après cela, les choses sont devenues incontrôlables.
Et si cela s'était déjà produit ?
Je suis la seule à me souvenir de ce qui s'est passé là-bas et je n'en ai parlé à personne, pas même à Daniel.
Jusqu'ici . . .
