Thanks to Shannon Ozirny and Quill and Quire for awarding The Truth Commission its sixth starred review!
“The book, complete with a bombshell ending that is messily realistic and totally satisfying, is one you can (and should) embrace.”
I’m in Smithers, my old home town, visiting my mother and trying to finish a new novel. Rodie and I have having a lovely time, but there’s a chance he may not be quite as beautifully behaved as he might be. I’m not saying that he keeps jumping on my mother, trying to lick her like a drunken Kiss fan at a reunion concert. Nor will I admit that he has stolen her breakfast toast off the counter. I’ll just say that his exuberance is undiminished by a change of scenery. Ahem.
I look like complete hell in selfies, so I’ll post a few of Rodie.
Here you can see the effect of getting extra snacks from Grandmother.
Arguing over a library fine. As one does when one is willful.
I believe the technical term for this is “chillin’ like a villain”.
I will be giving a reading at the Smithers library next Saturday. If you’re in the vicinity, please join us!
