First rodeos

by Eric Chang on July 14, 2016

Next week will be my first writing retreat. The good folks at the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley have awarded me the James D. Houston Memorial Scholarship to attend.

And, the editors at J Journal called today. They’ve accepted my short story, “Golden Star,” and will publish it in their Spring 2017 issue. Yay!

To my old clients

by Eric Chang on January 12, 2014

I’m no longer practicing real estate. After twelve years in the trade, I’ve decided to scratch a certain itch and do some writing. So I’m no longer with Alain Pinel Realtors, or any other brokerage.

I enjoy receiving the occasional note from you. Do keep in touch and let me know how you’re doing. Eventually I’ll revamp this website.
