Chinese Circles

Reading is a great way to travel. Enjoy a journey to China and Hong Kong with Chinese Circles.

This website is designed to help you find information about the novels, and discover more about the places and characters featured in them.

The Shanghai Circle follows the lives of a taipan’s family and a triad gang during the Chinese war with the Japanese in 1936 and 1937. The Hong Kong Circle sees the action move to the colony through the war years, and up until the fall of China´s Republican government to Mao Zedong in 1949. The Mao Circle takes us through the traumatic years of Maoist China, and in 1967 how the Cultural Revolution almost brought Hong Kong to its knees.

You’ll find much of the inspiration behind each of the novels in Fact and Fiction and Photos, while my connection to this enigmatic part of the world is explained in Author.

One of my daughters, Diana Rosie, has had her first novel, Alberto’s Lost Birthday, published by MacMillan’s as a hard back (and Kindle) in the UK. It is also available in German, and will be released as a paperback in the summer, including French and Italian versions.  A great success for Diana. Her story unlike her father’s books, is devoid of violence and sex. So is that why I’m still writing eBooks and she’s a published author?
