Made in Thailand (2017)
Made in Thailand is the autobiographical story of my adolescent years so that you might get to know me as an author a little better.
Raised in the country and used to my circle of close friends at school, my father drops a bombshell and tells my mother and I that we are about to pack our bags and move to Bangkok. Bangkok and the bright lights of the city were totally alien to me and even the knowledge that I had been enrolled into a prestigious, international school named Patana did nothing to alleviate my initial fears. However, after rather a shaky start, Patana proved to be my making and gave me choices I would most probably never have taken.
Who We Were (2016)
It is difficult to understand the theory of a parallel existence, but two young people – Jace and Melodi – experience out-of-place memories that later prove to be strangely accurate in detail.
In 1950, a young man named Qingshan moves to Jiangning in China with his parents in search of a better life. He meets a beautiful young lady named Lei-Li, but their love is forbidden due to old family traditions and cultural differences and they pay the ultimate penalty for trying to be together.
Jace and Melodi meet at High School in Connecticut in the USA in 1996 and feel an immediate affiliation for each another, but their relationship is also doomed. They meet up again as adults, when Jace is a doctor and Melodi a writer, and their paths become intertwined through the words written in a diary by Lei-Li. The coincidences are hard to ignore and a tragic accident leads to a better understanding of who they really were.
