“Old Mr. Ma” & Cara – Gong Hao, China (2008)

I’ve been moved by the audiences who’ve taken an interest in the stories of my search for the family history of my Mexican-Chinese Grandma. In 2021, I had a few opportunities to share the story of my journey to China to heal an old family divide. In case you haven’t seen the story, Old Mr. Ma, here’s a recording of the 10-minute version, which I told at the Santa Monica Playhouse. It appeared in 80 Minutes Around the World, produced by Nestor Gomez and M.J. Kang. If you like the topic, please keep your eyes peeled for news of my upcoming historical novel, Candlelight Bridge.
