For twelve years, Cindy MacNamara has enjoyed the perks of affluence in Oak Park, Chicago, but it all ends on an icy January morning when she discovers her husband’s body, and the unimaginable reason he took his own life.
The highlight of 2015, was my week in Manitoba as a Toronto Dominion Canada Book Week Author, an experience that dramatically broadened my outlook on Canada. As I travelled throughout the province, speaking at libraries and schools, speaking about THE RACHEL TRILOGY, I saw the magnitude of a true prairie sky for the first time. Meeting avid readers and answering their thoughtful questions are among my best memories of the week, along with my appearance on CTV Morning Live on May 5. Here’s the link: http://t.co/R8iC5CMgX8
For 2016, I’ve added a Book Clubs Discussion Guide to my website, compiled of topics I encounter when I speak to groups. If you’re a teacher, be sure to look at my Rachel Trilogy Literature Guides on this website, which are written to Common Core and the National Council of the Teachers of English Standards. They’re free! I’ve also included writing tips and exercises which can be accessed by clicking the “On Writing” tab. I love to hear from readers; you can e-mail me through this site and contact me through the following:
