  • Dear Friends:

    Thank you for reading my stories. Thank you for giving me the encouragement to take my writing seriously.

    I want to let you know that I will be taking a hiatus from Cowbird. I am focusing my energy on writing a novel.

    I have already written the first page and am very excited. The novel is still in gestation and so even I do not know what it will ultimately be about. I know only that it will reflect many of the themes that I have explored on Cowbird--Vietnamese history, spirituality, AIDS, being gay, violence... For a long time, I have been trying to find an architecture to assemble these disparate themes together into one book--I think I have finally found a workable framework.

    None of this would have happened without your support. Your loves.

    Forever Grateful,
