'The Jade Lily' rights sold into North America, Germany, The Netherlands and Hebrew.

So excited that THE JADE LILY will be winding around the world. Also, it will be published in Hebrew. 

My lovely US publisher, Tessa Woodward wrote:

 ‘from the moment I started reading THE JADE LILY, I knew I wanted to publish it. The book spoke to me on so many levels-as an exploration of an-unknown-to-me part of Jewish and Chinese history, as a well-researched look at the harsh realities of war, and, ultimately, as a beautiful story of what it means to be a family and what one is willing to do for love.’

So honoured to join this amazing publisher and can’t wait to work with them.
