elcome. My novels are set in China. They're also very personal, inspired by family stories, including tales of various ancestors who encountered dragons, ghosts, and immortals.
Inevitably, these stories found their way into my writing. And yes, I absolutely believe that my seven-times-great-grandfather walked through a Door to the land of Immortals.
About the blogs. Writing takes way more time and discipline than I first imagined. That's why my blogs are mostly about the journey of being a writer, the ups and downs and the practical issues.
That's also why when I write a book review, I try to decipher how the author did something especially well. So each review is about the story and also the craft of writing. If you're a emerging writer, I hope you find them useful.
It's Spring 2018 and I'm working on my third novel, which is set during an event in Chinese history not many people know about. And that's all I'll say here. But if you sign up to my newsletter, you'll get tidbits along the way. I promise to send them out only when there's stuff worth announcing. Or if my cat does something really cute.
