I am from the expatriate Chinese community of Vietnam, and was born in Canada. I did my medical training in Toronto, and am an emergency physician in Toronto. A Lecturer with the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto, I've also worked in international air evacuation and expedition medicine on Arctic and Antarctic ships.
My first book, Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures, won the 2006 Scotiabank Giller Prize, and has recently been adapted for television and broadcast on HBO Canada. I co-authored The Flu Pandemic And You, a non-fiction guide to influenza pandemics.
The Headmaster's Wager is about a Chinese compulsive gambler and headmaster of an English school in Saigon during the Vietnam War, is published by Doubleday Canada. My biography of Tommy Douglas is published by Penguin Canada as part of Extraordinary Canadians series.
