Anna May Wong was a native Los Angeleno and the first Chinese-American movie star. She landed her first film at 17 years old in the silent The Toll of the Sea and later appeared opposite Marlene Dietrich in Shanghai Express

Though she was a talented actress, she struggled to avoid being typecast. What’s worse, she occasionally was passed over for Asian roles when producers hired Europeans instead of her. 

In 1951 Wong became the first Asian lead in a U.S. television show when she starred in “The Gallery of Madame Liu-Tsong”.

Greetings: haven’t done a blog post in a while, but the writing continues.  The road goes ever on and on…

A few days ago I participated in an interview with one of my favorite New Pulp authors, Derrick Ferguson.  You can read the interview over here at his blog.  When you’re done, I urge you to check out Derrick’s own writing, especially his incredibly fun Dillon series.  Every book is like a summer blockbuster.

And now back to writing…

Looking at old photos of real samurai is like looking at old photos of Native American warriors: time and progress and change is running over them.  As the photos were being taken they were already relics, they just didn’t know it yet.
