In anticipation of the new release, the Asian Books Blog  invited me to write a guest blog post about my story. In it, I talked a bit about my writing process, and how Shanghai Story was conceived. You can read the post here.

Once again, thank you for continuing to be a part of my story world.


All the best,

Old Photo of the Bund from the 1930s

This is an old photo of the Bund in Shanghai. It was taken in the late 1930s and offers a view of what the setting of Shanghai Story was like. Notice that the Chinese men on the left wore a fedora and a Chinese style of clothing called tangzhuang. This was a common way Chinese men dressed at the time, and reflective of Chinese traditions and Western influence. You will notice in Shanghai Story that some of the characters were described to be wearing tangzhuang as well.
