How to be a writer:

1) Break your own heart.
2) Add glitter to shattered pieces.
3) Share with strangers.

We all do dumb things when we're young. I watched the Dukes of Hazzard. Others attended Klan rallies. #Racism

Gay marriage has been legal in other countries for years. All that happens is...gay people get married. That's it. It's love, folks. Nothing to be afraid of. #LoveWins

Harlan Ellison used to take his typewriter on airplanes and work. Must have been weirdly annoying, mildly impressive. #Writing  
Welcome to the author page of Jamie Ford. Decent writer. Failed poet. Stridently self-deprecating.

Introduction
Jamie Ford is the great grandson of Nevada mining pioneer Min Chung, who emigrated from Kaiping, China, to San Francisco in 1865, where he adopted the western name "Ford," thus confusing countless generations.

His debut novel, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet was a New York Times bestseller and went on to win the 2010 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature.

His new novel SONGS OF WILLOW FROST was published in 2013

Bragging rights
His work has been translated into 34 languages. Jamie is still holding out for Klingon (that’s when you know you’ve made it).
