Amber and I met in college. Our common interests have included college theatre department rebellion, living abroad, creative urban dwelling and writing. She's one of the most talented writers I've encountered. Her writing is compelling, emotionally raw, it's simply spell-binding. She's just published her novel, Reaching Prague and will soon have her second title, How the fat girl got thin published. If you're in the market for a sweet spring read, check out the synopsis and the link to her website below:
Reaching Prague is a darkly psychological tale of adultery set in contemporary Prague. Betrayed by her husband, Sarah Billings flees to Prague in an effort to cope his duplicity and to figure out the rest of her life. In Prague she meets Mikul, a handsome bar owner with mafia ties, who at first seems to be exactly what she needs.
Soon they are conducting an illicit affair filled with erotic tension, painful awakenings and looming violence. Slowly, as the seduction intensifies, Sarah begins to lose herself in the dark underbelly of Mikul’s reality. She must choose between subjugation and salvation.
Mesmorizing and artfully constructed, Reaching Prague, is a personal journey into the exploration of deception, desire and, ultimately, the many layers of the human heart.
