I write about home. In the blocks-and-mortar sense, yes. But I also write about the villages, towns, cities and homelands we call “home” and our relationships with them. I’ve been doing so for decades, no matter what job I was in at the time.
A Good Home, now a bestseller, was written over many years. The story begins in a tiny, magical, pink farmhouse in the Jamaican countryside and ends in another farmhouse — this one, a sprawling, historic place near Toronto, Canada with many stories of its own.
An Honest House is an intimate look at a family dealing with some hard truths after a life-changing event. Despite those realities, this book is also about a family determined to express love, find courage, celebrate their blessings, and laugh.
An Honest House has been critically praised and won the 2016 Diamond Award for Book of the Year. (I was shocked by that — it was a difficult book to write.)
