She lived in Japan for three years before returning to Britain, and The Coming of the Barbarians was her first book. This was followed by The Deer Cry Pavilion, A Curious Life for a Lady, To China With Love, The Memsahibs and Taming the Jungle. She then turned her hand to fiction with the immensely successful Chinese Alice, Uncut Jade and Kenjiro, all set in the nineteenth-century East.
