I created this site to allow anyone to comment or review my books, and, if necessary, to allow me to respond and provide additional insight into historical background, or simply to explain why I wrote what I wrote.
neihtn is the name of my email account. It is my Vietnamese first name (Hien) and initials, spelled backward. Why backward? One reason is to indicate that I now live on the opposite side of the world from where I was born and spent over two decades of my life.
Do I write for a living? No, writing is something that I have wanted to do for almost all my life, but I used to have a “regular” job in Information Technology. It took me almost four years to write Village Teacher at night and on weekends.
I am also an amateur photographer. I like to take pictures of birds, wildlife, flowers and landscapes. After my recent retirement at the end of 2014, I now blog and post photos almost daily. I hope you will enjoy them, and that you will comment on them as much and as often as you like.
Update: In January of 2016 I was recalled back to work with my previous employer, as a contractor. I intend to work until the end of 2017, and then resume retirement and book writing.
Update: At the end of 2017, I retired again and will be devoting more time to writing and photography.
