Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
For me, writing is so much more than just words, it is a medium to share a important story. I actually learned a lot about myself as I continued writing as it allowed me to reflect. It's nice to able to sit in your room, and just pour into your own world.
What do your fans mean to you?
Over the last 18 months, I've had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of people and they have all shown me incredible support and I am so very grateful. I sometimes get emails about my story, my book and also about my views in regards to the British Chinese Diaspora and it really spurs me on. It makes a big difference.
