Transatlantic is elated to announce that internationally bestselling author of RECIPE FOR A PERFECT WIFE, Karma Brown’s horror debut THE MOTHER, centered around an art conservator’s obsession with a mysterious painting that leads her down a sinister path where the lines between reality and the unexplained blur, threatening her pregnancy, sanity, and even her life, has been acquired by Maya Ziv at Dutton (US) and Brittany Lavery at Simon & Schuster Canada (Canada)!

Deal by Carolyn Forde at Transatlantic Agency.

Karma Brown is the author of five novels: the #1 international bestseller Recipe for a Perfect Wife, Come Away with Me (a Globe and Mail Best Book of 2015), Globe and Mail and Toronto Star bestsellers The Choices We Make and In This Moment, and The Life Lucy Knew. She is also the author of The 4% Fix: How One Hour Can Change Your Life. An award-winning journalist, Karma has been published in SELF, Redbook, and Today’s Parent, among others. She lives just outside Toronto with her husband, daughter, and a Labradoodle named Fred.

Congratulations Karma!
