Attica Locke is one of America’s most exciting writers, whose work not only encompasses award-winning novels, but writing and producing for television, including Netflix’s When They See Us and Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere, and an upcoming adaptation of Waiting to Exhale.

Her third novel, Pleasantville, won the Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction and was long-listed for the Bailey’s Prize for Women’s Fiction. The Cutting Season won the Ernest Gaines Award for Literary Excellence. Her first novel, Black Water Rising, was nominated for an Edgar Award, an NAACP Image Award, as well as a Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and short-listed for the Women’s Prize for Fiction.

Heaven My Home is the thrilling follow-up to the Edgar Award-winning Bluebird, Bluebird. It finds Texas Ranger Darren Matthews on the hunt for a missing boy whose family are infamous white supremacists. It’s set in a small town whose economy thrives on nostalgia for the ante-bellum era, a place where that era’s racism still thrives. In his race to save the boy, Darren has to battle centuries-old suspicions and prejudices, while facing fresh threats reignited by America’s current political climate.
