Please don't over-think your new novel too much! Can't wait to read it. Of course you love China for its ability to spark creative juices! Let me know how we can help get your word out in the U.S.


It has been said that there are 2 types of people in the world - those who've been to India and those who haven't. The first group can reliably be subdivided into those who absolutely love it and those who hate it.

I don't think that you can be that extreme about China - especially as someone who lives there. Traveling there is amazing and the quirks of the place are cute and fascinating. After living there for a while, they become annoying and frustrating. I recall reading an EXTREMELY long rant written by a blogger who had lived in Japan (which has other issues to those faced in China) for 5 years. It wasn't that he didn't like the place and was planning on leaving, but he just had to vent!

I live in Shanghai, China, with my Irish
husband and Vietnamese daughter.
Throughout the past four years, I've
crisscrossed the globe more times than
I can count, and while doing so, have
discovered what a kooky, miraculous,
and lovely place our world is. My experiences
enlighten me, inspire me, and crack me up.
