Torre DeRoche is the author of two travel memoirs. She is currently at work on her third book, a novel inspired by a horror story her father wrote in 1992.


Love With a Chance of Drowning

A funny and heartwarming story of one woman’s pursuit to walk off a lifetime of fear – with a soulmate, a pair of bad shoes and whole lot of wine.

“A moving account of conquering fears while walking a pilgrim’s path. Also funny as f@#k.” – Janice MacLeod, author of New York Times bestseller Paris Letters

“A witty and engrossing tale of loss, pain, and transformation that captivates the reader as magically as her first book. I couldn’t put it down!” – Matt Kepnes, New York Times Bestselling Author of How to Travel the World on $50 a Day


The Worrier's Guide to the End of the World

A city girl with a morbid fear of deep water, Torre DeRoche is not someone you would ordinarily find adrift in the middle of the stormy Pacific aboard a leaky sailboat – total crew of two – struggling to keep an old boat, a new relationship and her floundering sanity afloat.

“Wow, what a book. Exciting. Dramatic. Honest. Torre DeRoche is an author to follow.” —Australian Associated Press

“In her debut, DeRoche has penned such a beautiful, thrilling story you’ll have to remind yourself it’s not fiction. Her language is effortless.” —Courier Mail

“A funny, irresistibly offbeat tale about the risks and rewards of living, and loving, with an open heart.” —Kirkus Reviews
