About the Author: Kelly Braffet

I'm the author of the novel Save Yourself, to be published in August 2013 by Crown Publishing, which is a heartwarming story about a boy man and his dog teenaged stalker. It's also about a bunch of people wondering what to do about their parents, and what to do about their children, and what to do about money, and what to do about God. There's also a few bits about Led Zeppelin, and a few bits about zombie movies, and one slightly disturbing story about an orca attack at SeaWorld which is mostly true, and which I witnessed as a seven-year-old Brownie scout. (Yes. I was a Brownie scout. Wanna make something of it?)

I'm also the author of the novels Josie and Jack and Last Seen Leaving, both published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Those two don't have any orcas in them, but I like to think they're still good.

In Josie and Jack, Kelly Braffet gives us a deliciously dark, suspenseful debut novel in the tradition of Patricia Highsmith.

Beautiful, brilliant, and inseparable, Josie and Jack Raeburn live a secluded, anarchic existence in their decaying western Pennsylvania home. The only adult in their lives is their rage-prone father, a physicist, whose erratic behavior finally drives them away. Without a moral compass to guide them, Jack leads Josie into a menacing world of wealth, eroticism, and betrayal. His sociopathic tendencies emerge, and soon Josie must decide which is stronger: the love and devotion she feels for her brother or her will to survive.

From its opening page to its shocking climax, this contemporary Hansel and Gretel story is compulsively readable and hugely entertaining.
