“…a poignantly emotional and highly relatable story…” – SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL ★ review

Amah Faraway is a delightful story of a child’s visit to a grandmother and home far away, and of how families connect and love across distance, language, and cultures.

When Red discovers a new book about pandas, she can’t wait to read it! Except it’s about only one kind of panda, and red pandas are completely left out. Red never gets to read stories about pandas like herself! So she decides to take matters into her own paws and write her own book.

I love words. The sounds, the meanings, the ability to connect with people and move emotions. 

After decades of avid reading and writing practice, I am thrilled to finally be an author.
