Paula Chinick is another amazingly talented writer from the Tri-Valley Area.
Writing as P.C. Chinkck, Paula has completed her first novel, Red Asscher~Living In Fear, a spy thriller set in 1943 China. The terror and atrocities experienced by the Chinese at the time of the Japanese Occupation is intense in this too believable novel. A fearful American woman thrown into Japanese occupied Shanghai confronts her tragic past. As the story progresses, murder and treachery find her.
Toss in a few spies, add some Communist Chinese intrigue, and the story comes to life. I wasn’t able to put it down once I turned the first page.
Look for Red Asscher-Living in Fear to be published this year
Paula is working on the second book in the Red Asscher Series, Red Asscher~The Mission.
Paula has contributed short stories to:
Tri-Valley Anthology – Voices of the Valley: First Press (Createspace 2011)
Oakland’s Creative Writing Anthology – Tapestry
The California Writers Club Literary Review 2013

Paula has a very interesting Tag Line, one that gives one pause for thought: If you live your life in fear and had the opportunity to change…would you?
