Many thanks to all of you for your support for these novels over the years. All the Chen backlist is now available, both as print and e-copies, with Open Road Media in New York (you can find them here:

The time has now come to return to the final (for now) Chen novel, to finish the story threads that have been building over the previous books: the tension between Heaven and Hell with Earth in the middle; some mysteries about the badger teakettle; Jhai and Zhu Irzh's marriage, and Chen and Inari's baby.


The last set of stories have gone out for 2013-14 (email me if you'd like to order these - they are still available), and I have floated a new sub for 2014/15 - don't sign up if you've signed up already for this year!

THE MIX: I will be writing 8 stories.

CHEN: and 4 more stories for Chen and friends!

The first set of these have gone out - I'm in the process of writing the next set now.

Hee! Yes, I know that one.

Managed to complete a total debacle on Xmas presents this week with Paypal on behalf of my mother - who could probably have done it better herself, never having used paypal, or indeed a computer.

Are these new, or part of the set I've already ordered? Because if they're new, I want them, too!

You've ordered already! - but I will be doing another sub in the spring, including Chen.

Morningstar in Print ?

Hello, just was linked into this page from a web-search. Perhaps I'm misinterpreting, but is Morningstar an (author-distributed) eBook-only? Or is print, or print-on-demand, availability to be expected in future? Thank you.

It's via myself only as an e-book at present, but possibly coming out with my current publishers a little later in e-form.

So, as an ebook, is MORNINGSTAR now complete and available? And if so is that the "Chen 10GPB" PayPal link above? Funny, I thought I would be working on MORNINGSTAR a few years back! Cheers.

It is indeed! I enjoyed working with you - let's hope we have an opportunity to do so in future.

One more question: what format(s) is the ebook? And yes, my wish is that we have an opportunity to work together again on a new (Chen?) project. Cheers.

Hi Liz, I am a fan of your Inspector Chen stories and would love to support you. May I know what are the different short story sets and novels for Inspector Chen that you have available? I am confused between the 2013 and 2014 short story sets and am not sure which links I should use to purchase. Thank you very much!

How can I get my hands on a copy of Morning Star, or has that boat sailed?
