I’m a literature teacher and writer living in Saigon, where I was born, though I left the city as a child. In these pages you’ll find reflections about the city and a few trips to nearby places, along with my memories of Vietnam from when I grew up here. Much has changed, as you can imagine.
My memoir, entitled Remembering Water, details my experiences of returning to Vietnam, the family members with whom I’ve reconnected, and the people I’ve met and conversed with on my return. It won the Hidden Panther Creek Award in nonfiction and will be published by Hidden River Arts Press. Be on the lookout for it sometime next year.
Feel free to contact me (tab above) if you wish to be in touch. Happy reading!
