Stepping Stones continues Lek's story five years after The Lady in the Tree

Stepping Stones picks up the story of Lek, her family and friends in the village of Baan Suay four years on from where The Lady in The Tree finished.

Lek and Ayr are still looking to expand, but especially Lek's career in the political arena, where she finds evidence of disturbing activity.

Craig is still trying to write a best seller and Soom has graduated from university.

In Stepping Stones, we are introduced to the Champunot family from Bangkok, the members of which have a profound effect on Lek, Craig and Soom - one which none of them will ever be able to forget.

Stepping Stones reveals more in-depth details of life in a Thai family that has been affected by the inclusion of a falang like how they deal with the strange mixture of traditional and modern Thai life that that situation often creates.

Author Owen Jones, from Barry, South Wales, came to writing novels relatively recently, although he has been writing all his adult life. He has lived and worked in several countries and travelled in many, many more.
He speaks, or has spoken, seven languages fluently and is currently learning Thai, since he lives in Thailand with his Thai wife of ten years.
\"It has never taken me long to learn a language,\" he says, \"but Thai bears no relationship to any other language I have ever studied before.\"
When asked about his style of writing, he said, \"I\'m a Celt, and we are Romantic. I believe in reincarnation and lots more besides in that vein. Those beliefs, like \'Do unto another...\', and \'What goes round comes around\', Fate and Karma are central to my life, so they are reflected in my work\'.
His first novel, \'Daddy\'s Hobby\' from the series \'Behind The Smile: The Story of Lek, a Bar Girl in Pattaya\' has been followed by six sequels, but his largest collection is \'The Megan Series\', twenty-three novellettes on the psychic development of a young teenage girl, the subtitle of which, \'A Spirit Guide, A Ghost Tiger and One Scary Mother!\' sums them up nicely.
As Owen puts it:
\'Born in the Land of Song, living in the Land of Smiles\'.
