OI wrote the first words of Where the Air Is Sweet in June 2009 sitting at a newly constructed wooden desk in this apartment (see photo) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. 

While I was working on the book I came across this quote from E.L. Doctorow that helped me through some difficult times in the following years:

“Writing is like driving at night in the fog. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”

Five years almost to the day I began this journey, I have arrived.

My book is released. To buy, click here. 

Cheers!

Less than a month to go before launch (June 3) and I just received these beautiful bookmarks (that I helped create in InDesign). Thank you HarperCollins!! Hope to give these out at launches, readings, book clubs…Remember if you would  like me to join your book club I’m happy to do so (in person or on Skype). Contact me here.

You can purchase the book at Amazon.ca and have it shipped internationally.

Unfortunately you cannot download an e-book unless you are living in Canada.

But if my fellow Canadians buy the book in nice, big numbers, perhaps we can sell rights to publishers in the UK, US and elsewhere who would then distribute the book in their territories, making everyone’s lives easier. 😉

If you encounter any problems/issues purchasing the book, please contact me via my website (the message goes directly to my gmail account).
