Ep. 109: Jamie Ford is a Multiracial Asian man with roots in China. He's also, according to Jamie, part "Betty Crocker" White (on his mother's side). In addition, he is the New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet—which was, in no particular order, an IndieBound NEXT List Selection, a Borders Original Voices Selection, a Barnes & Noble Book Club Selection, Pennie’s Pick at Costco, a Target Bookmarked Club Pick, and a National Bestseller. It was also named the #1 Book Club Pick for Fall 2009/Winter 2010 by the American Booksellers Association.
In addition, Hotel has been translated into 34 languages. He jokes that he's still holding out for Klingon (that’s when, Jamie says, you know you’ve made it).
His new novel, Songs of Willow Frost was published September 10, 2013. And he's also working on a YA (Young Adult) series.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Jamie is the proud father of more teenagers than he can keep track of.
