Background Information

 

      A diplomat's daughter who has lived in  New Zealand, Taiwan, Washington, D.C. and mostly since in the Los Angeles area, I grew up in a home of modest circumstances, but my parents always provided me with unconditional love and support, art supplies and books and a love for nature, learning, reading and writing.   When we moved to Taiwan, we lived in a three-generation Chinese home in which my paternal grandparents had a significant influence on my life with their lives of public service. It was during this time that I also developed an appreciation for Chinese history and culture, even though because of my NZ upbringing and non-existent Chinese language skills, I was enrolled in the Taipei American School.  It was when I misbehaved and sent to detention study hall that a pivotal moment occurred in my life.  Each student was required to write a composition and when I submitted mine at the end of the period, the teacher  read and actually graded it, giving me an A++. "Never stop writing," she told me, and I never did, writing poems, plays and short stories, often illustrating them myself. We moved again to the NY-NJ area and then down to DC when Dad was reassigned .  Later as an architecture student at Virginia Tech who couldn't handle the math (all liberal arts majors were required to take engineering math at that time because VPI did not yet have a  College of Arts and Sciences),  I changed my major to English with a history minor.  I found my niche on the yearbook staff, as the copy during my freshman year, and editor-in-chief during my two remaining years at Tech.  Married and having moved to California to complete my BA at the University of So. California, I discovered Chinese American history as a part of my graduation requirements and became a passionate community volunteer and charter member of the Chinese Historical Society of So. California.    My first book was Sane Motherhood: A Practical Guide to Motherhood which was little more than a 32-page pamphlet. My second was Night of the Red Moon, a historical fiction for children based on the 1871 Los Angeles Chinatown riot and massacre.  It was nominated for the John and Patricia Beatty Award and postively reviewed in the LA Times. My third title was Target: The US Asian Market a Practical Guide to Doing Business which rejected by six major, mainstream publishers.  I  independently published it and it won a business book award.  To date I have authored 27 business, inspirational, children's, feng shui and self-development titles,  some best-selling and award-winning. My entrepreneurship as an author and publisher, (Pacific Heritage Books, founded in 1993 to launch Target) public relations and marketing success on OPRAH, Regis, TIME, People, Redbook and 600+ other print, broadcast and internet media were all self taught. I have not taken any art, writing, accounting or business courses, only studied, read and experimented on my own.  I continue to keep a personal journal, write articles for my Rotary district and for examiner.com and am beginning to think about the book that educators and librarians have urged me to write for over fifteen years but the popularity of feng shui precluded it. Beyond Paper, Compass and Gunpowder: China's Gifts to the World will be my next children's book.     I invite all readers to contact me regarding any of my titles or let me know if I can be of help to them in any way related to the publications or subject matter.

Additional Information

You have a 100% chance of knowing someone with cancer. I invite you to share my latest release A Survivor's Secrets to Health & Happiness with those who you care about, survivors and their families. AS a 22-year multiple cancer survivor, I am passionate about sharing information and inspiration with others who have been touched by this terrible scourge. If you are in the greater Los Angeles area, please know that I provide author visits to any school, public or private for the cost of a free school lunch and a bottle of water and the permission to presell my children's books. I give a morning of assemblies, eat lunch, sign books which are distributed to students to take home on the same day they hear me speak. Topic is "How an Idea Becomes a Book." During each session, I bring my illustrations for show and tell and do a Powerpoint presentation, followed by a question and answer session, all during an hour! Contact me by email or through Facebook at Angi Ma Wong Author. It is my personal Rotary vocational service commitment to share my vocation with children.
