Rita Hogan has based this first novel West Dreams East on experience of teaching in China from 1988 to 1991. During that time she had to be evacuated from the provinces due to the threat of Civil War caused by the Tiananmen Revolution of 1989. Being one of the first evacuees from the provinces she wrote an article for the Irish Times on her experience entitled 'Isolated in China's Macabre Silence'. She decided to write a novel about the time to protect the identity of those she knows in China and for the creative opportunities afforded by fiction. She is also working on two other novels, one based on her experience of working in the Third World with the UN and another 'coming of age novel' about travelling and working in the USA, entitled 'Reviens New Orleans'. She currently works for the V.E.C. Adult Education College in Limerick teaching English to Asylum Seekers.
