Expecting Sunshine Book Tour: Boston Bound!

The Expecting Sunshine book tour has been a whirlwind! I LOVE meeting new people and collecting memories and stories. Truly, I have been blown away by the response to the book, which really shows me how much love there is out in the world. When I say that I mean that there are so many parents that love their children even when separated by death. The love is ever-present and palpable. This reminds me of my own enduring love for Zachary. It grounds me in the reason I wrote the book in the first place. I dedicate it to my son, whom I carry in my heart and continue to parent in a most unconventional way. These things sound abstract and woo-woo, but we all make peace with life, and its counterpart death, in our own unique ways. That is another thing I observed while on my travels. No two people do grief the same way, which is a beautiful reason we can learn from each other. If you’re feeling stuck, ask someone else how they cope and you’ll likely discover a whole new toolkit for mourning and healing.

I’m in a writing mood – can you tell?

Getting back on track:

Toronto was amazing and Boston is up next!

I am super excited to head back to my old stomping ground, where I did my schooling to get my Masters of Fine Art in Creative Writing from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA! I have a host of events around Boston and Cambridge – including speaking at Lesley – and am giddy to connect with the amazing literary community in Massachusetts! Not to mention my awesome friends from school.

I shopped at Porter Square Books when I was studying for my MFA – so this is going to be a very special stop for me on the book tour. I remember watching other authors read from their books there, surrounded by shelves of printed pages and the beautiful literary community from the area, and thinking WOW. It is going to be surreal to do it myself.
