Sure, it's simple writing for kids...Just as simple as raising them.

   I am thrilled to be announcing the launch of my new picture book, The Rock Maiden, a re-envisioned folk tale from Hong Kong. 

When her husband is lost at sea, Ling Yee climbs every morning to the top of a cliff to watch for signs of his return. Tin Hau, the Goddess of the Heavens, takes pity and turns Ling Yee and her child into stone so that they would mourn no more. Only then does the fisherman husband find his way home. Will the family forever be kept apart? Or will devotion and faithfulness ultimately be rewarded?
