It’s always a pleasure sitting down to chat with the very memorable bestselling author, Mingmei Yip.   Mingmei has written for major Hong Kong newspapers, and has appeared on many national and international television and radio programs. She immigrated to the United States in 1992. Besides writing mainstream and women’s fiction, she is a professional player of the Guqin, which is pronounced koo-chin, a Chinese zither, the most revered of all Chinese instruments. She was recently invited by Carnegie Hall to perform in “A Festival celebrating Chinese Culture” program. She had her solo Goddess exhibition at the New York Open Center Gallery held calligraphy workshops at the City University of New York and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  She has lectured extensively at Oxford University, Columbia University, Beijing University, University of Paris, Vassar College, Williams College and many others.

Her latest novel, The Witch’s Market, comes out in December by Kensington Books. Her other novels include: Skeleton Women Femmes Fatales); The Nine Fold Heaven, story of an ex spy and night-club singer undertaking a dangerous journey to look for her long lost lover and son; Peach Blossom Pavilion, story of the last Chinese Geisha; Petals from the Sky — an interracial love story; Song of the Silk Road , an adventure, and love story. Her latest novel is a beautifully written story of intrigue and self-discovery.

 

Novelwitch'smarketcoverKensy (2)Book Blurb:

Chinese-American assistant professor Eileen Chen specializes in folk religion at her San Francisco college. Though her grandmother made her living as a shamaness, Eileen publicly dismisses witchcraft as mere superstition. Yet privately, the subject intrigues her.

When a research project takes her to the Canary Islands—long rumored to be home to real witches—Eileen is struck by the lush beauty of Tenerife and its blend of Spanish and Moroccan culture. A stranger invites her to a local market where women sell amulets, charms, and love spells. Gradually Eileen immerses herself in her exotic surroundings, finding romance with a handsome young furniture maker. But as she learns more about the lives of these self-proclaimed witches, Eileen must choose how much trust to place in this new and seductive world, where love, greed, and vengeance can be as powerful, or as destructive, as any magic.
