There & Now

There & Now: a writer’s perspective on everyday life in rural South West China.  Published by Cargo in 2015

A Naxi saying  that sounds a little like “tia hu pe la tcher” translates as “when you are happy, so very happy, every part of you is happy including the faeces inside you”

Novella-length creative non-fiction collection, published by Cargo (2015)

Available to buy for kindle

Mixing interviews, poetry, recipes, an unexpected camel and a visit up the mountains to a Dongba shaman, this novella-length creative non-fiction collection explores my experience of the daily lives of the Naxi people in Yunnan province, China, as I interview them alongside American photographer Samantha Silver and translator/facilitator Frog Wing.
