REVIEWS

Reading Janice Landry’s books is like having a heart-to-heart with the wisest woman you know. Her unbelievable ability to connect with people means they open their hearts and tell her things they’ve never said out loud before. The resulting stories are rich and authentic tapestries shedding light on universal themes like grief, hope, resilience, and redemption. Her work is a master class in finding light in the darkness and sowing the seeds of hope.

Janice Landry’s writing is informed by her journalistic skill and her intellectual abilities, but is rooted in her heart and soul. She is so clearly driven by purpose and passion, and that, for me,  is what makes her books so compelling.

Though the themes Janice Landry tackles in her books are often difficult ones, her intense compassion and empathy for her interview guests radiate from every page. When reading Janice’s books, it is obvious that she is an expert writer and interviewer who cares deeply about people and their lives. The stories she thoughtfully collects, writes, and shares are the exact type society needs to hear more about.

Janice Landry has been a storyteller for as long as she can remember. 

The veteran Halifax journalist started writing fiction as a pastime in her youth when she grew up in Purcell’s Cove, Nova Scotia. She lived for many years at the namesake of her 2022 book, Eye of the Ocean, her late maternal grandparent’s summer home. 

Janice’s late father, Capt. Basil (Baz) Landry, M.B., of the former Halifax Fire Department, was the first person she can remember who gave her a love of both fiction and non-fiction by, firstly, creating make-believe stories during her childhood when he tucked her in at bedtime, and secondly, in her teen years, by explaining why reading the newspaper was important. Janice later became a reporter, producer, and anchor with CTV Atlantic. 

 

Landry’s late mother, Theresa, was a prolific reader in her younger years, and particularly loved mysteries and suspense thrillers, which are still Janice’s favorites. Landry pays homage to both of her late parents in her books and mental health advocacy work.

 

Growing up in Purcell’s Cove has had a lifelong, positive impact on the writer. Janice is still happiest near the ocean, sharing those moments now with her husband, Rob, and their daughter, Laura; her biggest cheerleaders.
