‘5 Questions’ with Kay Bratt!

Chasing China; A Daughter's Quest for Truth

Describe your book ‘Chasing China; A Daughter’s Quest for Truth‘ in ten words or less

Mia searches for answers as to why she was abandoned as a toddler

Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?

I lived in China for several years and worked with orphans who were abandoned. I imagined that as the children grew, so did their curiousity and longing to know why they were abandoned.

Which of your characters is closest to your heart and why?

My main character, Mia, is the closest to my heart because she is a creation of many girls I met and loved in China. Girls who only longed to feel wanted and to be a part of a family. I wanted Mia to find answers to the questions that would bring her peace.

Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?

I am also a volunteer director for an organization that supports children in China. In all of my titles, I try to use my love of writing and the goal of weaving a good tale to raise awareness of issues affecting women and children in Asia.

Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about

I’ve just finished revisions to a new project titled “A Thread Unbroken“. The story chronicles the journey of two girls in China who are abducted and sold to a family in a remote fishing village to be groomed as future brides. The story will show the tenacity and courage of one of the girls as she never gives up her will to find her way home.

Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!

Much of my inspiration for my writing comes from authors Lisa See and Amy Tan. While they are much more experienced and well known than I, I strive to build the same substantial fan base and reputation as an advocate for China that they have.
