    What an interesting combination of elements. I love
    gothic literature – throw in a vampire and all the better. I’m also
    fascinated with ancient China. Do you combine all these things into one
    plot (sounds intriguing) or just write a variety of genres? I’m also a
    writer so can relate to your situation. Congrats on being published
    already and good luck

      Actually, I have had people ask me why I don’t set The Vampire’s Daughter in ancient China. So that is something I might work on. The problem is that Chinese vampires and European vampires are completely different beasts, and of course, you have to take the culture into consideration. If I wanted to write a Chinese vampire story, it would have to be something new, not just adapted.
      I do have one Gothic Chinese horror erotic story I will release as part of a collection, but not as a stand-alone work.

    Very interesting background. It’s cool that you have a niche that makes you stand out from other writers. What other parts of Asia did you live in?

      I’ve only lived in mainland China, but I have been to Hong Kong, Macau, and Thailand. But I’ve lived in several places in China, from rural villages to bustling cities, so I draw on my own experiences and the experiences of people I have met in my writing.
