I have published six books of fiction, the latest from Asia 2000 in Hong Kong. My Flannery O'Connor Award collection of short stories, "Ghost Traps" has just been reprinted by U. Georgia Press. I am currently completing the last novel in what I call "The Beijing Trilogy," based on my years of teaching in China. And I have recently tried my hand at screenplay writing.
