'The strength of @jingwrites lies in her creating an intricate plot, which would have seemed implausible in the hands of a less skilled writer.' A rave review for #HowWeDisappeared from @prospect_uk


I love it when a reviewer gives my book this much consideration. ✨

How We Disappeared by @jingwrites is a story of survival & endurance in Japanese-occupied Singapore. Described by Xinran as an “unforgettable image of how women were silenced & disappeared by both war and culture”, it is nominated for our First Book Award https://t.co/I3ON1dqeE9

Man on train was annoyingly peering over at my laptop screen. ‘Keep going!’ he said, ‘just think, you might get it published one day.’ I gave him the Death Stare of a woman who has published ten books.
