David Belisleabout this book: Meet Marie Bellehumeur, a no fuss, no muss chain-smoker from St. Louis du Ha Ha! who lucks into becoming the number one nanny in Canada. Women would give their last bottle of nail polish to be near the dashing and debonair new prime minister, Justin Prudhomme. "I Was Justin's Nanny" is a dirty laundry political satire with an extended rinse cycle. This is Canada's answer to Trump on a slow day. Toss in an overzealous environmentalist who thinks his father got a raw deal in a Japanese-Canadian internment camp and (gasp) has political correctness been tossed out with the kitchen sink?
I lived in Ottawa for 20+ years so the goings-on the Hill have always provided rife fodder for satire. I envisioned a kind of horror show and thus modified the "I Was a Teenage Werewolf" to give the title some bite. The book wrote itself very quickly over the course of one summer. I hope this gives reader's a tongue-in-cheek look at the political scene in Canada.
