Hi, my name is Nguyen Truong, author and illustrator of the novel The Wishing Glass, and blog: thewishingglass.com.

I started this website after my battle with stage four liver cancer no longer looked hopeful.  It has been a bittersweet journey, though I have been blessed with the most amazing group of family and friends who have supported me in every way imaginable.  It is thanks to their love that I have been able to stay happy ever since my diagnosis.

In the time that I have remaining, I would like to accomplish some of the things that I was waiting for retirement to tackle. . . like writing a novel.

I hope my work here can bring a little happiness to anyone who cares to read it after I’m gone.  I am not a professional writer, but writing brings me peace, and I write for the simple joy of doing so.

For anyone else who has fought, or is fighting, this terrible disease, I pray for your swift recovery.  Life is a beautiful thing.  Don’t waste a single day on being anything other than Happy.


Nguyen Truong
