A touching exploration of a damaged family working to repair itself, with universal appeal.— Publisher’s Weekly
Hi—thanks for coming, and thanks for your interest in my books.
My third novel, The Shortest Way Home, is about a man who’s spent his adult life as a nurse caring for the poorest of the poor in developing countries around the world. Physically and emotionally burned out, Sean Doran returns home for a brief visit, only to find his elderly aunt, drama-loving sister and oddly quiet nephew are, as his sister puts it, “having our own little natural disaster.”
The Shortest Way Home returns to the setting of Shelter Me, and Cormac the baker plays an even bigger part as Sean’s best friend from high school. Though not exactly a sequel, readers will catch glimpses of Janie and Tug as their relationship progresses.
I hope you’ll enjoy it, and that you’ll let me know what you think—email me or leave a comment on my blog. Sign up for the newsletter if you like, and I’ll send you fairly infrequent but scintillating updates.
