Hello world!

The Jade Rubies Book Cover

Welcome to my blogsite.  I’m the author of “The Jade Rubies.”  This is a story of two young sisters, Sulan and May, sold in China to a rich merchant, Ming Yik and his wife Yook Lan who takes them to Vancouver, Canada, in 1915.  As if being in a foreign country isn’t bad enough, the girls are subjected to every degrading indignity such as rape, torture, and sexual abuse.  They are pawns in a grownup game but struggle to survive, even though they are prisoners in their Master’s house and tormented daily by their owner’s sadistic wife.  Years later when they are finally reunited with their Mother and Aunt they learn the shocking secret about the dangerous man who enslaved them. Despite everything, the girls find love and happiness in their new country. 

  I’ve also had many articles published in newspapers and magazines and here is one example –Face Magazine.
