Twins and Other Duos
In my upcoming A Magic Candle Shop Mystery book one, SNUFFED OUT, writing as Valona Jones, My main character Tabby Winslow has a twin sister named Sage. They are fraternal twins, and, in case you aren’t familiar with that term, it means that they aren’t identical and are in fact from different eggs.
My thoughts in going that route was that it would add more conflict, and boy has it! Tabby’s easy going, creative, and a blonde. Sage walks around with a chip on her shoulder, is a math whiz, and has black hair, to name a few of their differences.
They are both energetics, that is, they can both give and take energy, also they can both read auras. Tabby has two other paranormal talents. One is that she can use bright light or shadow energy to go invisible. The other is that she can completely recharge while she’s sleeping at home. Sage can do neither of those things, but she’s a whiz at plants.
Duos are everywhere. There’s peanut butter and jelly, macaroni and cheese, bacon and eggs, Batman and Robin, well, you get the picture. To enter a drawing to win a hardcover copy of DOGGONE IT, my haunted house mystery, chime in with a comment naming a famous duo. Winner announced Monday, Oct. 10.
