About the Author
The ongoing battle between the French and Viet Minh eventually forced Loan and her family to escape to South Vietnam. When Loan was thirteen, she ran away to Saigon to work at menial jobs to support her family, and flee the cruelty of her stepfather. While there, she was introduced to bars, nightclubs, and Saigon Tea. At eighteen, she dated and lived with a young American airman. Two months after their baby was born, the airman returned to America, and Loan never heard from him again. She raised their son by herself. Time healed her heart, and she eventually found true love in a young Air Force officer, whom she married in 1968, accompanied him to the United States in 1971, and shares her life with him to this day.
She became a naturalized American citizen in 1973, and while becoming a mother and raising two sons and a daughter, obtained her high school GED and attended numerous college courses. Linda graduated first in her class from her school of cosmetology and received her certification from the state of South Carolina. She is the owner/operator of the successful "Elegance by Linda B." Beauty Salon in Charleston, South Carolina.
She is the author of Red Blood, Yellow Skin, and its sequel, Journey on Edge, to be released soon.

SPOILER: She says to her mother one day, when it was clear there were too many mouths to feed, I'm old enough to take care of myself. I'll go to Saigon and find work. Her mother said, Okay. Ms. Baer of was all of THIRTEEN!! I couldn't believe it.
She is an amazing woman and this is a fascinating memoir of a child's life in Viet Nam during the war (and also her teenage years). God bless her.
