As a child, I was easily scared. I loved reading books about brave girls, and often imagined myself doing brave things in fictional adventures.

I still love adventure novels, so I wrote one. The Second Promise is about Cali Leung, a Chinese-American girl who sets out in 1883 from Bodie, California to find her father. She travels through the wild West, meeting miners and robbers, cowboys and Indians, shepherds and hotel-keepers and mountain guides.  What was it like back then to be Chinese? or Indian? or a woman?

Most of all, The Second Promise is the story of a girl who learns to conquer fear.
