After living in China for almost five years, I published my memoir, Silent Tears; A Journey of Hope In A Chinese Orphanage. The interest in my story makes it possible for me to continue my passion to make a difference in the lives of children in the orphanages of China.
Now I use my love and knowledge of China to write Asian-inspired fiction. I am also a volunteer director for AOW (An Orphans Wish), an organization that proudly supports children in China.
Using news articles, special interest stories, and fiction, I strive to bring the adoption community together with others who would like to learn more about China. Visit me on Facebook or write me an email. I love to hear your comments or share in your life experiences!

If you liked The Bridge and A Thread Unbroken, you are going to love what’s in store for you next!
The Scavenger's Daughters
A super huge project that I'll be telling you more about later!
With the positive feedback and requests for more stories like Train to Nowhere, between longer works I’ll be writing more novellas that are set during the tumultuous Cultural Revolution.
House of Hu (Sequel to Chasing China)
Only outlined at this time, I’ll be going back to work on House of Hu very soon so that readers who enjoyed Mia and Jax’ story in Chasing China can learn where they are now!
