Wing Jones is the much anticipated debut novel from Katherine Webber, publishing 5th January 2017 in the UK.
Ever since I’d graduated university, my two main goals had been to move back to Hong Kong and to somehow become a published author. So as much as I enjoyed living in Atlanta, when I had the opportunity to go back to Hong Kong with my job, I took it. It was amazing to be back in the city of my heart.Gorgeous photo isn't - I admit I'd love to travel myself and so much of this has influenced Wing Jones then I can't wait to read it.
