His recent non-fiction book, “The Gathering Place; a collection of stories from the Armenian Social Club in Old Shanghai” is available through Amazon. This book is based on interviews with travelers and family migrating across Asia from Armenia, to Siberia, Mongolia, into Northern China and Shanghai during the Japanese occupation. They witnessed genocide, revolution, banditry, occupation and two World Wars, as they struggled to get to America.
In 2017, he released a new ‘based on fact’ novella about Armenians in Kars, Turkey circa 1810 called “The Tales of Ohan” which can be considered a prequel to his previous book.
The novel, “The Tchaikovsky” is a fiction thriller about a child prodigy possessed by a ghost and the para-psychologist who uses Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto (one of the most difficult solo instrumentals ever composed) to effect an exorcism.
Sergoyan is one of the contributing authors in a spooky Halloween anthology called “Tasting Evil” published in 2019 by the Writers Cooperative of the Pacific Northwest.
He will be releasing a new Sci-Fi book, titled “The Dreamweaver” in early 2020.
He and his wife live in Mukilteo, Washington with family nearby. He spends his retirement enjoying the mountains and underwater scenery in the American Northwest, hand knotting oriental rugs on a Tabriz loom, and writing more thrillers.
