It’s my first attempt at writing about how ashamed I was of my Chinese background. I wish I could go back in time and change how I thought of my dad and our heritage but I can’t. I wish I could have embraced my Chinese culture but I didn’t.
But I’m grateful that I am finally able to celebrate it. I want to learn about my Chinese roots as much as I can, while I can. My dad and I have become much closer over the years and I’m extremely blessed that our relationship has strengthened and grown.
My short story “The Donut Dealer” is featured on the Great Jones Street app. This is a cool new app that coins itself as the “Netflix of fiction.” This story of mine was originally published in All Due Respect, Issue #6 back in 2015 and is one of my favorites.
“Tea works in his aunt’s donut shop, with a nice side line of drug dealing. When he’s approached by a slimy consultant named Scott Axelrod, telling him to persuade his aunt to agree to the seaside lagoon development which will wipe out the handful of Chinese businesses, he is put in a tricky situation.”

Blood is definitely thicker than water as Tea will soon find out. Business is not easy, and keeping the scheming developers at bay is a daunting task for the eighteen year old. Luckily for young Tea, the Lagoon takes care of its own. So don’t ever mess with Guma! Check out “The Donut Dealer” by Sarah M. Chen, author👉http://gjs.rocks/The-Donut-Dealer
