I will be the featured speaker for the Headliners Club on August 13th. To ensure we are safely social distancing, this will be a zoom call available to members of the Headliners Club. Log-on starts at 6:15. Presentation begins at 6:30.
When did World War II begin?
This talk will take place on the 83rd anniversary of the day historians and I would argue is when the second world war truly began. We will revisit the events that led to the global war that forever changed the world's political alignment and social structure.

Above the Water
My first novel Above the Water is loosely based on several family members and includes anecdotes from my own experiences in East Asia. The title is a play on the Chinese characters for ‘Shanghai,’ which literally translate to ‘above the sea’ denoting the city’s location at the confluence of the Yangtze River and the East China Sea. It is an allegory about the compromises people are forced to make in difficult circumstances. Two lovers, Harry and Viktoria, have been cast apart by war and are making individual sacrifices in their respective journeys to find one another again. It’s a story of love, family, moral ambiguity, and perseverance.
