As I wait for final proofs on “The Jade Serpent,” I have started outlining my next project – a nonfiction story about the history of Myanmar intertwined with my year of teaching in that very complicated country.
With current news of the mass migrations of Rohingya into Bangladesh (NY Times), women and children barely able to walk from sheer starvation and desperate fear, it feels important to share my experience with the kind, loving people I encountered as well as show the realities of bias and strong-armed governments. I am looking forward to this next year of reflection and research. You can follow my non-fiction blog as I develop this book here.
I will also be starting Book Three in the “Treasure Chest Mysteries” which has a preliminary title of “The Black Tortoise.” It will take place in the exotic country of Vietnam:
Join Koen and Titanus as they journey deep into the heart of Vietnam, where conspiracy and danger await at every turn.
