Incredibly excited (and just a little nervous) for my interview with @KirstyWark tomorrow at the @BBCWorld tent for Talking Books. More to come... #talkingbooks @edbookfest

Loved being in conversation with @MBunting_ and @stevenmgale. And what a venue! Thanks to @edbookfest for organising this event!

So excited to be at @edbookfest! Looking forward to my event with @MBunting_ tomorrow (1015am) at the Spiegel Tent! https://t.co/lSAQDAUdW2

I love how this thread about a near-riot (in SINGAPORE) over a phone turns into an appeal for cat welfare groups. Hero.

'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
