So this is what happens...

When you sit next to the cute guy in your college Linguistics class.

It was 8:30 am and he had crappy coffee, so we didn’t talk for 3 excruciating weeks.

But one day, I worked up the nerve to ask about the textbook sitting on his desk. I clearly made an impression with my Hello Kitty t-shirt, because he asked to hang out later that day.

A reenactment of our meet-cute for our save-the-date photo.

Six years later, we got married.

Not a reenactment of our nuptials.

Five years after that, our best friends tied the knot.

Hubby and I are second from the left.

But since most college relationships end when college is over, I once asked my husband during a Star Trek marathon:

  • "What if we had broken up after graduation?"
  • "Would our best friends have met?"
  • "And if they did, do you think we would re-met at their wedding and fallen in love again?"

And that is how the idea of my debut novel was born 🎉. It’s your kind of story if you love:

  • Zany multi-generational family antics like Kevin Kwan's Crazy Rich Asians.
  • Second-chance romances like Nicholas Sparks' The Notebook.
  • Character-driven plots with an alternating timeline, like V.E. Schwab’s The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue
  • Reading and learning about Asian-American culture.

(And of course, there’s lots of delicious Vietnamese food featured in the book. Do you even have to ask?)

P.S. I have no idea when I will be finished with the final manuscript, let alone get an agent and a book deal, so this is the only place you can get a preview!
