Kirie Stromberg's grandparents met at a prisoner of war camp in Henan after the War of Resistance against Japanese Invasion.

A youthful Acupuncturist sent out to the country side during the Cultural Revolution happened upon a Japanese businessman caught up in the conflict and imprisoned at the camp. From there, love blossomed.

Kirie's parents met on the campus of Beijing Language and Culture University in the early 1980's.

Her mother, an injured former Ballerina from the mid-west instantly fell for her father, a half Japanese and half Chinese young student sent over to learn his mother tongue.

A product of two grand East Asian love stories, it was only natural that Kirie would find herself somewhere in East Asia.
