Sambath Meas arrived in Chicago in 1981 aged eight years old. Her family had just endured the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia and had escaped and got their ticket to the United States. Her family's story of constant fear and hunger and more is told in the 204 pages of The Immortal Seeds: Life goes on for a Khmer family, and published by Wheatmark this month. Sambath holds a batchelor's degree in political science from Loyola University in Chicago and is already working on her next two books called Modern Conquest and Memories of the Golden Pagoda.
