Emma Oxford, author At Least We Lived

At Least We Lived is the first book by Emma Oxford, Max and Audrey’s elder daughter, and it is based on her parents’ extraordinary collection of letters and journals. Emma began the book when she lived recently in Hong Kong, and she supplemented her parents’ eyewitness accounts of life in Asia with her own extensive research in the region.

Emma grew up in Malaysia and England, and graduated from Oxford University with a Master’s in Modern Languages. Her career has spanned the UK and the US, and focused on government service (including time as chief of staff to two of Margaret Thatcher’s Ministers), consulting and education. She is a fellow of the British American Project, and a founder member of HERO (the Hong Kong Escape Re-enactment Organisation). Emma is based in Washington DC with her husband, Michael Elliott, CEO of the ONE Campaign and former international journalist. She appreciates any opportunities to travel back to Asia and England.
