Sorry, Judy! I just saw this now.
I don't see writing that way, or at least not Sister of Mine that way. Not in terms of messages or beliefs. I find I get interested in a vague idea around people, relationships, society, scenarios, and then I start. I was interested in sisters being bound together forever and the things that would put strain on their/our loyalties. I was curious about debts owed vs favours done out of love. I wanted to put those questions under the broiler of a small town and see what happens. :)

Hi Folks!


I just got my own beautiful copy of ‘Love, Heather’, and tore open the box with excitement. There is nothing quite like seeing copies of a book you suffered and sweat over in its finished form.






 


I am beyond excited, my friends. I am having two launches: one in my little town of Grimsby, Ontario, at my local coffee shop where I wrote the damn thing. And I think (hope? pray?) that we

Love, Heather by Laurie Petrou
Good for him! That book is one of my all-time faves!
I would wait a few years for him to read 'Love, Heather', just because of the serious nature of some of the subjects, but I really hope he reads it when he's older!
