Latest review on Spooky Twisties I posted in Midwest Book Review Magazine January 2018 :
Critique: "An original, deftly written, and impressively entertaining mix of horror, humor and 'twisted endings', "Spookie Twisties I" is very highly recommended for both school and community library collections for readers of all ages and will leave them looking eagerly toward the publication of "Spookie Twisties II"!." - Midwest Book Review Mary Cowper - Reviewer
I have some 'frightfully' good news as I crossed a bucket list item off my 2018 list and am now an 'Official Member of Horror Writers Association'!
http://www.horror.org . So excited to share and benefit from this organization.
Terri Bertha submitted Spooky Twisties II designed by Charlotte Volnek. “The book cover connects with the first story in Spooky Twisties II, but also has a connection to a story in Spooky Twisties I.”
JF: Fun and well organized.
Wishing everyone a Happy 2018! Hoping you all are enjoying Spooky Twisties and sharing with your friends and family. I've had some great feedback from young and old alike on the tales and hope to continue to provide fun, entertaining stories of my spooky neighborhood. Feel free to comment your feedback on the stories as I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Excited to say a story of mine "Missing Elf on the Shelf" was
accepted into this anthology. Now available in print and ebook. All for charity. https://www.amazon.com/dp/1973594080. Merry Mythmas one and all!
Thank you to my local bookstore Bradley's Books Outlet for selling my books, kind words and being Spooky Twisties Fans!

Local author Terri Bertha returns with more delightful tales of the unexpected, tales from the dark side - 13 spine-tingling tales of terror for youthful readers of all ages! Great stocking stuffer! Definitely, most, definitely a true "Staff Pick!""
I didn’t set out to write Middle Grade/Young Adult, but found this age group matched my style of writing - not too graphic or scary, light hearted and fun. Interconnecting the stories with ‘easter eggs’ and ending them in ways the reader doesn’t expect, is what I love to do. I enjoy writing my tales more on the amusing side so kids will want to read them and come back for more. Getting kids to read is one of my goals.
Yikes! It's here! Spooky Twisties II !
Hello, and welcome back to the kids spooky neighborhood. What kind of 'scary' adventures are in store for the group this time?
Will an old map actually lead to treasure?
Can a magic set become too real?
Will this year's carnival be better than the last?
Can you guess the 'twisted' story endings?
Don't be afraid to find out as you re-enter their spooky world, and remember 'spooky things don't just happen in the dark'.

The group wanted to meet here tonight to read #spookytwisties book 1. I don’t think I can go alone. Will you come with me?
