Jamie Ford’s debut novel, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, has been translated into thirty-four languages and spent two years on the New York Times bestseller list. His second novel, Songs of Willow Frost, came out in 2013, and he is currently at work on a YA novel. He is the proud father of more teenagers than he can keep track of.
