    I wanted to get in touch with Frances Wood, as I am looking for a sinologist or someone with a good working knowledge of the history and culture of China, to help me with a novel I am writing set in Ming Dynasty China. If she is interested, perhaps she could contact me via my email address. Many Thanks, Justin.
