“Imagine a love story where the girl doesn’t get the boy (or the girl) and still lives happily ever after…”

The trauma of abuse as a child… A hedonistic lifestyle in London and New York during the AIDS crisis… Sex… Love… Addiction… Ecstasy… Despair… A skyrocketing international career that spirals out of control… And then, a chance encounter that changes everything.

Drawing on the ancient wisdom of the Lotus Sutra, DRAGON KING’S DAUGHTER is a twenty-first century love story. A searingly honest memoir of addiction and recovery through a combination of 12 Step, intensive yoga and Buddhist philosophy, it charts a journey of transformation from suffering to self-realization. A message for every woman – and for every man too.
