His early works were mostly essays, reflections and travelogues, but his true love was fiction. For eight years he searched for a story with wings. In the end, the story found him.

In the summer of 2008, Addison’s wife gave him an idea that he found irresistible—a novel on the global trade in human beings.

Lauren I read A Walk Across the Sun before it came out and I fell in love. The topic of Human Trafficking has always held a special place in my heart. I've read numerous non-fiction books on the topics and I found your novel to mirror a lot of the facts I've read in those books. You told this story in such a beautiful heartbreaking way, I'm pushing this novel on my youtube channel and on all my friends. Gorgeous work.
