Be sure to ask me about my first novel, The Pacific Between.
It is a story set between two Pacific coasts (California and the South China Sea), about an American who discovers intimate letters among his late father's belongings, and embarks on a transpacific search for the woman who wrote them. The problem is, he loved and left this woman many years ago, when he was an adolescent.
It is fundamentally a love story: parent and child, friends and lovers. It examines parallels between two generations. It asks the pertinent question: Can we really move on without saying goodbye and letting go?
