Dan Lambert & Anhthao Bui

"Anhthao and Dan's Love Adventure:
Tales from a Writing Couple"

Dan and Anhthao "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways..." This is a line from a poem written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning for her husband, Robert Browning. Daniel E. Lambert read this poem aloud at his wedding to author and poet Anhthao Bui on July 31, 2015. What is it like to be married to a fellow writer? How difficult is it to work with a print-on-demand publisher such as AuthorHouse? Anhthao and Dan will answer these questions and many others when they speak to the Southwest Manuscripters on Saturday, May 7, 2016, from 2 to 4 pm. Dan's fiction collection, Mere Anarchy, will be released in May. His poetry collection, Love and Other Diversions, is now available on Anhthao's poetry collection Yellow Flower and short story collection Fish Sauce are also available on

     Anhthao Bui inherits the artistic germ and educational desire from her family. In the re-education camp, her father held an English dictionary and a guitar (and a poetry notebook hidden in his pocket) as he exhaled his last breath. In the United States, her mother took a bus to attend Adult School to learn English, although she was over 70 years old. Anhthao earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English in 2004 from San Jose State University. She is pursuing her Master of Arts in English.
