About the Book

All The Amazing Arden is the most notorious female illusionist of her day, renowned for sawing a man in half. One night, with policeman Virgil Holt in the audience, she swaps her saw for a fire ax. A new trick or an all-too-real murder? When a dead body is discovered, the answer seems clear. But under Holt's interrogation, what Arden’s story reveals is both unbelievable and spellbinding. Even handcuffed and alone, she is far from powerless. During one eerie night, Holt must decide whether to turn Arden in or set her free…and it will take all he has to see through the smoke and mirrors.

Praise for The Art of Falling

Craft’s debut novel lovingly traces the aesthetics of movement and gently explores the shattering pain of despair.” —Kirkus

Craft, a former dance teacher, choreographer, and critic, delivers an enjoyable portrait of the hidden world of dance and the mind of a dancer.” —Publishers Weekly

About the Book

All Penny has ever wanted to do is dance--and when that chance is taken from her, it pushes her to the brink of despair, from which she might never return. When she wakes up after a traumatic fall, bruised and battered but miraculously alive, Penny must confront the memories that have haunted her for years, using her love of movement to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. Kathryn Craft’s lyrical debut novel is a masterful portrayal of a young woman trying to come to terms with her body and the artistic world that has repeatedly rejected her. The Art of Falling expresses the beauty of movement, the stasis of despair, and the unlimited possibilities that come with a new beginning.

Whiskey and Charlie

The Orphan Sky

Whiskey and Charlie may be identical twins, but they are also polar opposites who are incapable of getting along. Their relationship has deteriorated so much that Charlie can’t even bear to talk to his brother anymore. But when a freak accident puts Whiskey in a coma and leaves their family in limbo, Charlie is forced to face the fact he may never speak to his brother again.
 
Whiskey and Charlie is a wise, clever exploration of making mistakes and facing up to them, of sibling rivalry, the damage it can do, and the ways family can make us whole. 
In 1979 Azerbaijan, young piano prodigy Leila Badalbeili receives an order from her Communist mentor—to spy on a suspicious music shop. When she meets the shop’s owner, a rebellious young painter, the veneer of the Communist world she once believed in begins to crack. Just as Leila begins to fall in love, she’s discovered by her comrades and forced to make an impossible choice. Set at the crossroads of Turkish, Persian, and Russian cultures as the red banner of Communism bared down and the West beckoned, The Orphan Sky lyrically reveals one woman’s struggle to find her place in the world.
