Over the eight years it took to write The Valley of Amazement, there were major distractions: Multiple visits to a Dong minority village in the most remote province in China to write a story for National Geographic. Writing libretto for the opera The Bonesetter's Daughter. Building an all-accessible house. And there was a major detour when I discovered a photograph, which then turned the novel upside down and led me to start over.
I will be on book tour from early November until mid-December. I hope to see you at a book signing. Check the newsletter for specific dates and events.
