Born in Macon, Georgia, where my immigrant parents, the only Chinese in town, raised their family running our laundry until we moved to San Francisco when I was 15. I taught psychology for 40 years at California State University, Long Beach, before I retired. Then I wrote a memoir, "Southern Fried Rice," about our lives in Georgia. This book attracted positive attention, especially in the Mississippi Delta, and led me to visit the Delta for 2 weeks and later publish a social history about the Delta Chinese grocery families, "Chopsticks in the Land of Cotton" in 2008.
