Book Description
Brothers Owen and Alex Collins are brought together when mental illness claims their father and sets off a chain reaction of unrelated, heart-breaking events. Both tender and bold in its delivery, Away from Everywhere cuts no corners in telling the story of their crushing childhood, the reasons the brothers become different men, and the unthinkable act of love that tears them apart. Nearing thirty-five, Owen is plagued by childhood demons, the ghosts of failed relationships, and a persistent feeling that his life lacks meaning. When Alex arranges for Owen to stay with his wife and family, what feels like a new beginning becomes one last wrong turn.

Part warped love story, part family tragedy, Away from Everywhere is a heart-stomping pageturner.

"Gripping from page one, Away from Everywhere is a finely crafted novel from one of the most talented young writers to come out of Newfoundland in recent years."
-Kenneth J. Harvey, international bestselling author of Inside and Blackstrap Hawco

“This emotionally wrenching story made me cry. It also made me lament not having written it … A fascinating and tender portrait of a soul in torment. The text is articulate and lyrical.”
- M.T. Dohaney, award-winning author of The Corrigan Women

"Away from Everywhere pulls at the live filament between father and son ... [and] with lifetimes worth of blood, violence, delusion and broken love, this is no redemption story.”
- Kathleen Winter, award-winning author of boYs
