We’ve all had those days when life seemed to be going along swimmingly and then suddenly took a left turn into the Twilite Zone. It’s the perfect set up for a story: the ordinary person on the ordinary day gone terribly wrong.

This is how it happens, I thought. A series of unexpected events and wham, nothing will ever be the same again.

The men had me worried. -Janet Evanovich, Wicked Appetite
