My name is Jeremy Francis, and I am a 25-year-old first-time novelist hailing from the islands of The Bahamas. In 2000, at the age of 13, I competed in the Grand Bahama District Spelling Bee on my island and finished in first place. Later that year, I competed in the country's National Spelling Bee competition and finished in second position. My knack for words caught the attention of Grand Bahama's local newspaper General Manager/Editor at the time, Oswald Brown, who offered me to come and work at The Freeport News once I graduated high school. I became a journalist at the age of 18 and worked at the newspaper company for two years. This novel has been written out of a burning desire to always write and express myself through words.
That presumably empty cottage situated in the middle of Yarmouth, Massachusetts' expansive woods created a shock when somebody living behind its decrepit wooden doors made it blatantly obvious that life indeed did subsist behind them. Amanda Sillow, who had been abducted at the age of 14 and was now nearly 100 years of age, wasn't in the least bit pleased when construction on the home of a neighbor got under way next door to her. She is now bent on doing whatever it takes to drive her new neighbors out of the neighborhood - starting before they even move in.
So, she didn't want those neighbors around, but Ms. Sillow wasn't fussy about having her grandson, Presley, come to live with her. She genuinely loved the boy, and he loved her. It was just his love that he had for his mother that she couldn't stand. In due time, Ms. Sillow would make her daughter regret ever having dropped her son off to live with her.
The Sins of His Grandmother is a gripping tale that brings to light the affects that jealousy can have on an individual who, though not clinically diagnosed to be mentally unsteady, exhibits clear, alarming mental deficiencies and should, at all costs, be avoided. With the author having drawn from some too-close-to-home personal experiences of his own, this fictional mystery/thriller has, in fact, been written in truth.
