Hong Kong writer Ni Kuang, also known as Ngai Hong, creator of the sci-fi martial arts series Wisely and many film screenplays, believes Leung is a business legend but once told her: "You have to finish a book that only you're qualified and ready to write."

He is referring to a novel that relates to Hong Kong's recent history, witnessed by a writer born in the same as the founding of the People's Republic of China and therefore someone who is a product of our time, who has experienced the ups and downs of China's business environment.

Leung's response is her planned trilogy, revolving around her life and Hong Kong's history. Book one will cover her youth up to 1979; book two depicts her career up to the return of Hong Kong to China in 1997; book three will focus on what she calls the prime of her life.

She intends to finish the series in 2015 and work for two years on the TV and film adaptations.

"I want to write an unprecedented book about Hong Kong based on credible personal stories," Leung says.

"By recording Hong Kong in those years, along with the flow of my life, I hope to inform Hong Kong people about their city and its history."

Leung also announced she would donate royalties of up to 1 million yuan ($159,000) from her last novel to charity.
