Anita Leung announces her magnum opus, a trilogy

Having produced more than 140 books, mostly business-themed novels, Hong Kong writer Anita Leung (Leung Fung-yee) intends to wrap up her writing career with a trilogy called Our Stories.

"I'm presenting the works as a gift on the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to the motherland in 2017," Leung says.

Leung, also an accomplished businessperson with a company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, hosted a Beijing event to announce the decision in late April. Hundreds attended, including friends, relatives, fans, her husband and ex-husband.

"I made the announcement at a big get-together to use it as a spur, because the novel I'm about to write is one of the biggest challenges I have faced," Leung says.

Born in Hong Kong in 1949, Leung has become a pioneering role model.

Having previously worked as a screenwriter, she started writing novels in 1989 when her business was not doing so well. Most of her novels echo Leung's own experiences, struggling in Hong Kong's business world from the 1970s onward.

Her books were wildly popular when they were introduced to the mainland in the 1990s, and were later adapted for TV and film.

One fan at the Beijing event, surnamed Cao, said reading Leung's books helped transform him from a boy into a senior manager.
