Ursula Wong

Ursula grew up working on the family dairy farm started by her grandparents who fled Lithuania and the Bolsheviks for a better life in the U.S. After losing her father at a young age, Ursula overcame poverty and went on to become a high tech engineer. An adventurous traveler, scuba diver, and hiker, Ursula writes gripping stories about strong women struggling against impossible odds to achieve their dreams. Her work has appeared in Everyday Fiction, Spinetingler Magazine, and the popular Insanity Tales anthologies.

Her award-winning debut novel, Purple Trees, exposes a stark side of rural New England life in the experiences of a young woman struggling for normalcy despite a vicious and hidden past. After losing her parents, Lily Phelps grows up fast to find work and build a future, but her secrets threaten every one she loves.

Ursula taps her heritage in her WW II novel, Amber Wolf. Destitute after her parents are taken by Russian soldiers, young Ludmelia Kudirka joins the farmers fighting for freedom in a David-and-Goliath struggle against the mighty Soviet war machine. Rich with scenes and legends of Lithuania, Amber Wolf gels the turmoil of war into the saga of a family torn apart by the Soviet occupation.
