glimpse of my life and writing.

trust each other with their very lives.

East-West novel that has been getting rave reviews. I
hope that Jade Phoenix will give you an understanding of Taiwan in much the same
way as The Kite Runner revealed Afghan culture.

THE NEW VOICES IN LITERATURE AWARD FINALIST
A WILLIAM FAULKNER COMPETITION SEMI-FINALIST
“A passionate novel of culture in turmoil, loyalties put to the test, and love so strong it transcends the limits of life itself, Jade Phoenix entrances and compels the reader up to the final page.”
Michael Dunford, Midwest Book Review
“Goldsmith has fashioned a terrific story… /that/ takes one back
to those tumultuous days as experienced by three compelling
characters from very different cultures.”
Alan Caruba, Bookviews
"…a marvelous collage of history, politics, mystery and romance."
Pat Averbach, Director, Chautauqua Writers Center
In Jade Phoenix, a stroke of the pen
shatters dreams of nationhood,
foreign devils challenge Chinese customs,
and love blooms in a
wilderness of misunderstanding.
