Short biography
Ting-xing Ye was born in Shanghai and came to Toronto in August 1987 as a visiting scholar to York University. After living in Toronto for five years, she moved to Orillia.Although Ting-xing enjoyed reading books as a child, she did not enjoy a simple childhood. She was born on June 28, 1952, the fourth child of a factory worker. She was orphaned at thirteen, and her high-school education was cut short by the Cultural Revolution. She majored in English language and literature at Beijing University, and yet, in thirty-five years of living in China, she never once took the initiative to write. Ting-xing realized at a very early age that, in China, the act of writing “black character on white paper” could prove dangerous. China’s totalitarian regime punished, suppressed, and occasionally executed people for their thoughts, spoken words, and writing.Ting-xing lives in Orillia with her husband, author William Bell. Her plans are to continue to learn and grow by doing research and writing.
