Love a good story?
Miss being read to?
Then you are invited to enjoy Story Time for Adults. This is not a “story appreciation hour” but rather a time to recapture the simple pleasure of story and the expectancy we experienced as children hanging on to the reader’s every word, wondering, “what next?”

Jessica Bellas records the most humorous moments of her first thirty months living as an expatriate in Hong Kong, from the media circus resulting from the dramatic rescue of her dog by the Hong Kong Fire Services Department to out-drinking Communist party officials in China to dodging confetti cannons. She also examines more poignant issues such as discrimination, racism and culture shock. Maotai, Mooncakes & Monks is a memoir, culture shock guide, travelogue, political commentary and adventure rolled into one. Nury Vittachi, founding editor of the Asia Literary Review, wrote the foreward to Jessica’s book and said, “But while Jessica makes no claim to be any sort of expert on Chinese culture, her access to information was bolstered by one remarkable skill she had that won her enormous respect from officials, factory bosses and academics alike: she could out-drink most of the men at social occasions, even when the drink being served was the infamously powerful Maotai rice liquor.”
Jessica, a native of South Park, returned home in October 2009 to be closer to her family. She works as an engineer and project manager during the day so she can earn enough money to fund her global travels. Maotai, Mooncakes and Monks, her first book, was released in 2009 by Tamco Publishing.
