Chinese by birth but spiritually Italian, Chin's strength and tenacity to overcome drugs, liquor, promiscuity and the very real attraction of suicide is a read that you can't put down. Survival is innate as her abandonment in childhood teaches her to do whatever it takes to live. Her adventures take her across America and Canada as a young girl on her own; through the wild disco days, through a myriad of careers - from becoming a mother and wife to her multitude of lovers. And finally, to who she is now - still re-inventing herself.

Chin describes herself as an irreverent writer and single mom who does a balancing act between her wild, crazed past and peaceful present life. She writes from the depths of her heart as she believes it is the only way to write. Chin lives in New York.Review:
Edinburgh Book Review: An extraordinarily candid account of a life lived almost exclusively in transit, both literally and metaphorically... While the life that Chin leads is a fascinating mix of hedonism and domesticity, the accounts of her careers in advertising and sports media make compelling reading and show her remarkable aptitude for reinvention. The most moving aspect of this memoir is in the enumeration of the lives she has come into contact with over the years - the early deaths through cancer, AIDS and alcoholism, the broken relationships left in her wake and, most distressingly, the murder of an innocent child in horrific circumstances ... this is a book that elicits admiration for the author.
