The silent film EYES OF THE TOTEM that's featured in Songs of Willow Frost was thought to be lost. But 80 years later, a copy has been found! Plans are underway to have it shown at the Rialto in Tacoma.

Welcome to the author page of Jamie Ford. Decent writer. Failed poet. Stridently self-deprecating.

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).
