Like a Joyful Bird is a memoir of a third-generation Korean-American woman, born and raised in Hawaii. My story begins with the adventures of my grandparents, who emigrated from Korea to Hawaii, and the interesting lives of my parents and siblings. It then follows the twists and turns of my life which took me from a provincial childhood in Honolulu to a journey around the world ... from being a swinging bachelorette to being a devoted wife and mother ... from practicing my violin every day to writing at my computer. Like a Joyful Bird takes an upbeat look at my experiences and the people who have crossed my path.

Upon graduating from the University of Hawaii, Glenda Chung Hinchey circled the world solo, living in California, Thailand, Europe, and New York. After seven years abroad, she returned to Hawaii, where she currently resides with her husband and two daughters. She is an occasional commentator on Hawaii Public Radio.Review:
Hinchey s memoir follows a line begun by her Korean grandparents and continued through her life as an adventurous teacher in Southeast Asia and her more stable career in Honolulu as wife and mother. She tells her story in charming, savvy vignettes, but more importantly, Hinchey has tapped into something profound a life doesn t begin with birth and end with death. We re all a part of a continuing process --Burl Burlingame, Honolulu Star-Bulletin
I read your book, and it was just absolutely well done. I laughed... -- Roberta Chang, author of "The Koreans In Hawaii: A Pictorial History, 1903-2003"
The book is great and the humor right on time. Congratulations. -- Beverly Dukes, author of "Conversations with My Soul"
