I will be speaking at the Headliners Book Club on March 2, 2021. Whether we will be 'live' or 'virtual' will be determined as the event draws closer. Stay updated by joining my email list, or visit my website or social media for updates.
I look forward to discussing my novel, Above the Water with the book club and other Headliners members who are invited to attend.

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.
