This week at Chasing Ray, Colleen is hosting One Shot SE Asia Round-up. In celebration of works in this region, can you tell us who this writer is?

Minfong Ho
Born January 7, 1951, in Rangoon, Burma

"....began to see writing as "a political expression," as she once wrote in Interracial Books for Children Bulletin. She resented the stories about Thailand, Burma, and China she previously read, for she thought that their mostly idyllic portrayal of lives there misrepresented the Asia that she came to know during her childhood."

Thanks, Tashi. Check out Tashi at Taste Life Twice.

Evelyn: I know! This is a real one of those you-snooze-you-lose kind of contests!

Yes, it is. Keep in mind I post every Thursday and Saturday. I sometimes slip some in that don't show up on the front page. Always a good idea to click the tag, quizzes and check for unanswered quizzes. Your responses counts for the current month. Doesn't matter when the quiz was posted.
