“…Kyame is a girl who seems ready for her dragon tattoo…”
– Kirkus Reviews
Revelations of the Impossible Piddingtons: Adventures in Second Sight is the first book of a trilogy following Kyame Piddington’s remarkable life as she struggles to take her dead mother’s place in the family second sight act in the years 1890-95. Kyame grows from a frightened eleven-year-old desperately trying to learn the subtle secret codes, signs and cuing of second sight, as well as dealing with difficult and unforgiving audiences, killers, bank robbers, frauds, and spirit mediums — and with her utter rejection as only a theater girl and not acceptable in polite society — to becoming at sixteen, a tall green-eyed beauty, an accomplished artist, hardened stage performer, a skilled mesmerist whose remarkable powers work some of the time, and, as predicted by a Chinese astrologer in New York, an implacable assassin. In addition to a positive Kirkus review, it has received five stars on Amazon. The dust jacket won a national design award when the book was published.
Available as an ebook on Amazon Kindle and in print on Amazon.
