Literary Roots


I'd been checking out "The Next Big Bang," The Asian American Theatre Conference. It's quite amazing. I have strong theatre roots, something I'd forgotten about when I threw myself into writing novels.

This conference forced me to rekindle my love for the Theatre. Before I wrote for the page, I wrote for the stage. I ran into theatre artists that I hadn't seen in eons. I talked to Philip Kan Gotanda, Alice Tuan, Dan Kwong, Leilani Chan, Jessica Hagedorn, and more!

It was cool seeing and talking theatre again. I got a lump in my throat seeing people perform their hearts out. (If you haven't noticed I changed the "About Me" to reflect more of my work for the stage.) I think I'm gonna step back into the (theatre) ring again. It's time.

I am ready to buy my tickets right now. I've loved everything I've seen you perform.

I'm glad I can be such an inspiration to you, Noel. No, no, you don't have to keep repeating how you owe your entire career to me or anything like that. I'm humble.
