Welcome to my home away from home.  I am excited to share with you my first novel, Lotus.  Lotus was published on March 17, 2016.  It is the story of a young Chinese woman who arrives in America on the verge of becoming a mother.  In a new land with no family other than her husband to help her, she must navigate her way through her new life as she is faced with losing not only her own dreams, but also her child as nature and evil threaten her world. When her new friends cannot save her, she must learn than she has the capabilities to go to any lengths, including sacrificing herself and her desires, in order to save her child and stop the evil from spreading.  Set in San Francisco during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.

I feel this novel will appeal to both young adults as well as grown adults.  I look forward to sharing more of my writing journey over the past 2 years in birthing this first novel, as well as my next adventure with my second work in progress.

Thank you for visiting this space!  Please check back for more!

    1. I enjoy watching … I enjoy watching your videos nearly everyday. I find you to be thoughtful and very ingsfhtiul. For me personally I admire the Chinese people and not the government. This is based on my personal experience. As my GF is from China and I have been to China for a few months. I found the people to in a place that Canadians were at say in the 80s or 90s. -1Was this answer helpful?
