New Expat Women Book - First Book Club Meeting

Hi Everyone, I want to give a big thank you to the book club of teachers at MKIS (Mont' Kiara International School) here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for being the first book club to invite me along with our new book, Expat Women: Confessions - 50 Answers to Your Real-Life Questions about Living Abroad. They were all wonderfully enthusiastic listeners, who were also keen to ask questions and provide their own valuable insights. It was fabulous.

The added bonus was having six-time author David T.K.Wong present as well, to talk about his latest book, The Embrace of Harlots. David was extremely humble at the meeting, but afterwards, I looked up his website and find that he has lots of expat experience, and that he also gives away a GBP26,000 scholarship every year to a fiction writer who writes about the Far East. What a man!

Thanks Everyone at the book club meeting. And thanks Everyone who has supported us and bought one of our new books! Andrea

Back Row (L to R): Kathleen Walker-Cook, Ann Andrew,
