From the Author:

This is a important story that needs to be told. It's the life story of a Korean comfort women. In case you don't know (most Americans don't) 'comfort woman' is the euphemistic label given to girls and young women the Japanese forced to be sex slaves for their army during WWII.  

There are very few books about this atrocity, so I wrote DAUGHTERS OF THE DRAGON, a 92,000 word novel about the life of one of these women. Today, under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the Japanese are trying to bury this history. It's a crime and I hope my book can help Americans understand why the Koreans, Chinese and Filipinos have such a problem with Japan's position.

BTW, my first novel THE ESSENTIAL TRUTH won first prize in the Mayhaven award for fiction. I was also an award winning advertising copywriter for 34 years. I wrote two books (that I'm currently re-writing) before DAUGHTERS to learn this very difficult craft.

I'm convinced you'll enjoy this book. 

Bill Andrews


P.S. The comfort women who are still alive are now in their late 80's and 90's and their numbers are diminishing quickly. DAUGHTERS OF THE DRAGON is hard to take in a few places, but overall, it's a very uplifting story. And as I said, it's a story needs to be told!

About the Author:

For over 30 years, Bill Andrews was a copywriter and a marketing/brand executive and with several Fortune 500 companies. For fifteen of the more painful years, he ran his own advertising agency. At night and on weekends (and sometimes during the workday!) Bill wrote fiction. Bill's first novel titled THE ESSENTIAL TRUTH won first place in the 2008 Mayhaven Contest for fiction. Bill's third novel, DAUGHTERS OF THE DRAGON, was published in 2014 by MADhouse Press. The reviews have been outstanding. The MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW called it a "masterpiece of fiction." In May, it won an IPPY for historical fiction. The IPPYs is the world's largest writing contest, attracting thousands of entries worldwide. Today, Bill is retired and focused on his writing. He lives in Minneapolis with his wife, an inner-city public school teacher for 32 years. And his Korean-born daughter, the inspiration for DAUGHTERS OF THE DRAGON, is now an MD living in Houston, Texas.
