Sophronia Liu passed away one day after her sixtieth birthday, on 14 January 2013.
Her book, "A Shimmering Sea", is a JOINT-WINNER of the Proverse Prize 2012, and was published by Proverse on 11 April 2013.
As her publishers, we were working closely with her right up to her death to finalise her book for publication. We were very impressed that a person, so seriously ill, could put so much patient and efficient care into this work.
We have lost a talented writer and a sensitive human being, demonstrably able both to organise and to work with others to achieve a joint goal.
In Hong Kong, where she was born into the indigenous Liu Clan oftheNewTerritories, Sophronia was a member of both the Women in Publishing Society and the Hong Kong Writers' Circle. She has contributions in both the HKWIPS publication, "imprint" 11 ("Night at theTemple"), and the HKWC publication, "Measurements".
Although Sophronia spent many years in the USA, where she was active in the community and has many friends, she returned to her roots some years ago, to teach and write.
