A-Ma Alchemy of Love

A-Ma or Playing the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras, is a Historical Novel set in the 17th century Chinese Macao, where History is like the Playing the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras.

"A bridge builder between East and West, following ancient archaeological findings, she often dives into the historic settings more than 2,000 years back in time. In her novel, Ama: Playing the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras, the 53-year-old author makes a bold swerve into less traveled territory. She chooses for her protagonists: Ama, an African Priestess, living in the China's 17th century's Macao with Ruben who is a Portuguese Jesuit priest, Father Benedict, an Orthodox Christian with home in Balkans, and the book's perspective on China's rapidly growing Macao, changing sights and sounds, smells and perspective, from a bat to a goddess to a spirit. Its miracle and its enigma, is within the worlds of inner alchemy at the Age of Enlightenment." Sunday Times A-Ma's 5 stars review

"I started writing this as a 17th-century novel. In this novel, it was easy to write from the point of view of the main character, a priest or Ama's mother, or a man without a name, or a Goddess Lilith, I wanted to bring in the many first-person singular voices, starting with an animal, a bat who is a story teller, moving to Pythagoras, to people who meet Ama within the setting of her coffee house. This narrative framework is 50% inspired with the Yin mind-set, dreamy and emotional and 50% factual, male, mind driven." Says the Author in the Interview.

"Holding up a mirror to society of ancient worlds can be fanatical or too obvious within the storytelling environment, so I had to break the rhythm with myths, with art, with dreams." Sunday Times
