In June 2018, I published my first book with Down East Books. The book is called George and Barbara Bush, and I had the honor of writing it with the president and first lady’s granddaughter, Ellie LeBlond Sosa.

Over the course of a year, Ellie and I conducted interviews with her grandmother at Walker’s Point in Kennebunkport, Maine, and at the president’s home in Houston, Texas. We were also given access to hundreds of letters and diary entries at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, Texas.

The book came together as a biography of a 73-year marriage (and a 76-year courtship). With interviews with Mrs. Bush, Ellie’s personal memories, and pieces of letters and diaries, we stitched together a tale about a remarkable couple.

 

In the news…

And finally, a particularly heartwarming review…
