The Kung Fu Nuns of Nepal

I know that title sounds so comic book and outlandish, but this is a serious article, really.

Given that the legendary founder of Wing Chun is supposed to be a nun, I was immediately fascinated about the practice of teaching martial arts to sects of modern nuns and also the reasons behind it. I found this article really empowering.

Bad Karma Beware: Meet the Kung Fu Nuns of Nepal

The Cover for The Taming of Mei Lin

The Taming of Mei Lin - SEP 2010 undone-lowres

The cover for THE TAMING OF MEI LIN (excerpt), my September Undone release is here! First of all it’s gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. The colors are beautiful and the backdrop is sweeping.

Let the cover kibitz begin:

  • I think the hero looks a bit like Daniel Dae Kim from Lost, don’t you? I do love a nice strong jawline.


  • Time period: the clothing and hair isn’t Tang Dynasty. They had to take some liberties with that. The Undones are digitally published and so they create the covers from the Harlequin art bank, which leads me to the best part of the cover…
  • The heroine and hero may look very familiar because they also graced the cover of my favorite Harlequin Blaze, THE CONCUBINE by Jade Lee. Perhaps her lovers had met before in a previous life hundreds of years earlier in the Tang Dynasty? They were simply fated to meet again and fall in love eternally…


Cover models get reused all the time. I’m just tickled pink that Jade’s models reappear on my cover. I’ll always associate them with THE CONCUBINE, which is sitting proudly on my keeper shelf.
