The main character of 'The Beijing Family' book series is Kara Chan. She is a young, tall, slender licensed Calif. real estate broker who is the owner of a real estate brokerage and investment company. Misty, her red-headed assistant is outgoing and bubbly. Graduated with an MBA from Pepperdine Univ., Kara is intelligent, ambitious, strong and independent. She donates her time to charities and helping homeless women and children. Caring and insightful, she is the core of the book and moves the story lines. I developed Kara as a reflection of myself in many ways since the book series is inspired from real people and events. But if I had to choose a public figure to represent Kara, I would choose Lisa Ling.
