Joni Cham is the author of the novel, "In My Mother's House". She mostly writes fiction and essays but has started dabbling into poetry--a genre that has always intimidated her.

She is currently working on her second book, a collection of short stories tentatively titled "Daughter and Other Stories." She likes to think that she's pre-writing her second novel but because she can never really be sure about that, she has also taken up coding. Just to cover all bases.

She is also relearning Mandarin which she does by singing 光良's songs, and Spanish. She has yet to find a Spanish song to sing. She blogs at
