Out of the Lime Light

The Nokia Discovery China driving adventure was the result of my search for a topic for a second book. (The first, On the Road, can be found on www.ontheroadeditions.com.) I knew I wanted my next book to be related to my passion, driving adventures. I also knew I wanted it to be about China since China has been my home for the past fourteen years. More specifically, I wanted to write about the many wonderful people I've had the good fortune of meeting during all these years. I felt that the news headlines and even many books reflected a one-sided and mostly disconcerting view of China. What's more, I felt that this negative tenor covered up the kindness of the majority of the people that make up the modern Middle Kingdom. I wanted to write a book which would take as its subject the everyday men, women and children of this country, and to write about them in a light-hearted, good-read fashion.

Now that this amazing road trip is behind me, I'm working on a book proposal:
