Fraternal twins Justice and Temerity Bauer are not just siblings, but best friends. Temerity was born blind, talented, and wickedly funny. Though she's fiercely independent and a successful violinist with the city orchestra, she has always had her brother to watch out for her. Justice is both protective and resigned about his exceptional sibling, and they live together in a stylish loft with their pets, a not so smart dog named Runt, and a fat cat named Mouse. When Justice asks his girlfriend to marry him, it sends the twins into uncharted emotional territory and they are both uncertain of how the new relationship, and living apart, will affect them. As the story begins and they face the depth of their connection and the impending separation, memories and secrets are dredged up—both joyous and tragic—leaving Justice and Temerity confronted with old wounds that tie them to the past. Temerity has lost faith in her ability to have a romantic relationship, even with the handsome pianist that lives on the second floor. Meanwhile her friend Regan is attacked by an unstable, ex-husband who will stop at nothing, not even murder, to force her into submission. Seth, a twelve-year-old boy that the twins found living in the basement of their building a year before leads the siblings to Fay, a one-time teacher with schizophrenia, who protected the twelve-year old when he was homeless. Together the twins and their friends Rupert and Ellen set out to help get Fay the medication and treatment she deserves, and protect Regan from her dangerous ex. In spite of the dangers they confront, the biggest obstacle facing Temerity is learning to trust herself...and risk falling in love with the talented man downstairs who plays the piano so beautifully. Like A Man Called Ove, and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Twins is about exceptional people who have so much to offer but often live invisible lives. Twins is a love story about siblings, lovers, family, laughter, and the redemption of friendship. Twins is...

A messy, poignant, honest love story, just like life.

About the Author

To quote one producer’s introduction, Shari Shattuck has an IMDB list ‘as long as your arm,’ with more than two hundred television shows, films, mini-series, movies of the week and commercials on her acting resume. A few of her television credits are, ‘Dallas,’ ‘Sisters,’ ‘Life Goes On,’ ‘The Young and the Restless,’ and ‘Babylon Five.’ Her film credits include “On Deadly Ground,” with Micheal Caine “Spy Hard,” with Leslie Neilson and “A Man of Passion,” with Anthony Quinn. Her last film, “Scream at the Devil” will be available world wide in the next few months. In addition, she has performed many of the great theatrical roles including the lead role in a hit production of “Cabaret,” Lady Macbeth, Beatrice in “Much Ado,” and many others. Her many years of acting and directing all contributed to her sense of drama, comedy and story as a novelist.

Her last two books, “Invisible Ellen” and “Becoming Ellen”, the story of an introvert who learns to live an invisible life until she is befriended by a blind woman, have received rave reviews and have become much loved.

Shari’s first book, “Loaded,” was selected by Publisher’s Weekly as one of the Best of 2003. She has since published seven novels, co-produced two films with her husband, survived two fires, four mudslides, many rattlesnake relocations, and being the class-room-rep-parent-association-member for her daughters’ schools. She lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
