About the Author

Phung Le Ly Hayslip was born in Vietnam in 1950. She is the author of two memoirs--When Heaven and Earth Changed Places and Child of War, Woman of Peace--which were adapted into the film Heaven and Earth by Oliver Stone. Since 1986, she has helped rebuild her motherland through the two charitable organizations she established. Her efforts now focus exclusively on supporting the orphanages she founded in Vietnam.

Jay Wurts, an Air Guard pilot during the Vietnam War, has written and edited a variety of books.
