Carrick Publishing is proud to bring you this historically relevant memoir from one of Canada’s leading print publishers: J. Patrick O’Callaghan.
Born in the Republic of Ireland, J. Patrick (Pat) O’Callaghan became one of the giants of print journalism in Canada and beyond. He believed fervently in the role of a vigorous and free press in a democratic society and was quick to confront and expose any encroachment on that freedom by government or other agencies.
These memoirs are dedicated to those journalists who share his ideals, his integrity, and his moral imperative.

It’s been a stellar 5 years for Carrick Publishing. We celebrated that Anniversary in Sept/15. It’s been our honour and pleasure to have worked with many talented authors, helping them bring their stories to the world.
We’re thrilled to bring you this exceptional literary novel by Claudette C. Jeffrey: The Color of Life.
The Color of Life is ‘coming-of-age’ at its finest. This second book in the Claire Soublet series gathers the thread of recent American history to spin the tale of Sera, a woman of color who ‘passes for white’ in New Orleans.
When 23 year-old Claire Soublet arrives in New York City to begin her new life, she has no idea that after only four days a situation will arise forcing her to return to New Orleans. Growing up mired in years of hardship and being abandoned by family through death and disinterest, she manages to scratch and claw her way out of that life. And, in the process, she earns a college education.
Back in New Orleans and not ready to succumb to her old way of life, she enlists the help of her high school friend. They devise a plan to, once again, get Claire out of her hometown. With their new-found relationship, they return to New York together.
Claudette Carrida Jeffrey, a native New Orleanian, is a retired teacher who lives in Northern California. The Color of Life is her second installment in a four-book series.
Book one, A Brown Paper Bag and A Fine Tooth Comb (2012), begins the coming of age story of Claire Soublet, a young Creole of Color growing up in 1940s and 50s New Orleans.
