From laborer to author

book title: from laborer to author with subtitle" Flowers in heaven are rooted in hell", it is a true story. After Vietnam war ended on April 30, 1975, I am among half million member of ARVN, public servant imprisoned into the hell of reeducation camp.

During the period detention, I had a risky plan to learn English that was accused as counter-revolution, an imperial American language. If Vietcong discoverd, my life would be in peril, Vietcong could shoot or torture. Obviously, I told my mother tore a pocket dictionary by pieces, than stuck by rice glue, those created as newspaper. My mother wrapper the food supply every 3 month a visit. I learned in quiet in 5 years to complete the dictionary. I promised myself:" if survival, I will write the stories about the ruthless regime to treat the POW".

In 1981, I was released by illness, then 1982 escaped successful, I resettled anew life in Australia. During working to pay the cost living and sending moneny to my mother in Vietnam, the  most job was laborer, but I used the most time to learn English by myself at working places, news paper, books, even though from my daughter who born in Australia.

I spent the other 25 years, then my first books published in 2010, second once released in 2011 and the book number 3 has released on October 31, 2012. Within 3 years, three books published, how could a non English author write the books?. The answer is in the book:" From Laborer to author". 

Today the readers around the world read my books, they could understand those came from the hell.



My memoirs, a patient lesson for everyone who is facing the difficulty, danger, but do not give up, you can survival and after to be rewarded.
