Read my review of my favorite L’Engle novel, A Ring Of Endless Light.
Enjoying some Houston/ Gulf Coast Soul today….
Listen to more from The Suffers.
Last week I met historical fiction, mystery, and memoir author, Lisa See, possibly most famous for the movie adaptation of her novel, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. She discussed her inspiration through a series of coincidences and the specific writing journey related her newest release (on paperback), The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, a Chinese-American adoption story. It’s a tale of mothers, and, as Lisa says, it’s a universal tale because everyone has a mother.
Lisa See and Pearl S. Buck are two authors I admire greatly for their beautiful literary renderings of Chinese characters and settings. My YA trilogy, Days of the Guardian, and my middle-grade short story, The Baiji, include Chinese flavors, though to a much lesser degree. I have no Chinese relatives and have never traveled out of the U.S, therefore; I depended upon research.
There are many things as universal as mothers though, and I did my best to display the emotions, themes, and personalities that characters of all backgrounds and cultures share. I hope readers see themselves in my stories.
After all, everyone has a mother.
