Tawailert is a native of Korat Province. She is a rare and
remarkable woman and author, who has overcome many challenges in life.
Despite having only six years of formal schooling, she endeavored
at writing (in Thai language). After several years she completed a
book based on her own life growing up as a young girl in a rural village
in Thailandís impoverished Northeast. Wall
against the Wind is the English translation of her life
story which has been compared to the American classic Little House
on the Prairie. Jampee is also a painter and now divides her
time between Bangkok and London.
