About me

Location California
Introduction I lived in Asia for fifteen years and wrote for media in seven countries, including National Public Radio, Writer's Digest, Hemispheres (United Airlines), Islands Magazine, Singapore Straits Times, Japan Times and dozens of others. I was an editor at ALC Publishing in Tokyo when I met my husband, a native of southern China. We then lived in Singapore, frequently visiting his family in Fujian province, China. I now live in the Santa Cruz mountains of California with my husband and our four children. I'm a dedicated member of the Chinese-American community, and the past President of the Southbay chapter of the U.S.-China People's Friendship Association. I'm also the author of two novels set in Asia--My Half of the Sky (2006) and Blossoms and Bayonets (2012).
