A big congratulations to two of our authors, Caitlin Hicks and Susan Örnbratt. The two authors have been named to Judith D. Collins' Top 50 Must Read Books of 2015! 

Caitlin Hicks is the author of A Theory of Expanded Love. With a debut novel that is at once hilarious and moving, celebrated playwright Caitlin Hicks takes readers inside the malleable mind of a quirky adolescent in 1963 as Annie Shea tests her family’s strict boundaries and her own Theory of Expanded Love. Ms. Hicks' novel has been an iBooks Best New Fiction pick. Kirkus Reviews praised the book saying, "Annie's disarming voice evokes nostalgia for a bygone era and hope for humanity in a weary, modern world."

Susan Örnbratt is the author of The Particular Appeal of Gillian Pugsley. Ms. Örnbratt's debut novel takes readers from the shores of The Great Lakes to the slums of Bombay and a tiny island in between. This love story brings the reader on an intimate journey to unravel a family secret that’s lain hidden for generations. The Particular Appeal of Gillian Pugsley has been praised by many readers and reviwers. The Historical Novel Society calls Ms. Örnbratt's novel "exuberantly readable... with a delicious twist at the endrecommended."

Both books are available at your favorite bookstore, or online at Amazon.com, iBooks, and Barnes & Noble.
