Exclusive Interview: “Deep As The Sky, Red As The Sea” Author Rita Chang-Eppig


When we think of pirates, we often think of white men with British accents. But according to many historians, the best pirate of all time was a Chinese woman. It is this exceptional but unappreciated pirate whose story is (finally) being told, sort of, in Rita Chang-Eppig’s new historical adventure novel Deep As The Sky, Red As The Sea (hardcover, Kindle, audiobook). In the following email interview, Chang-Eppig discusses what inspired and influenced this story, as well why certain liberties had to be taken.
