Four years have passed by since their meeting. In 2014, Rick A. Ross newly published a book called Cults Inside Out. According to the book, Rick Alan Ross told reader one reason he wrote and published this book is the miserable experience of Falun Gong survivors Hao Huijun and her daughter, and their bravery to find freedom of mind.

In his book’s preamble, Rick Alan Ross says that the book is for Hao Huijun and her daughter, Chen Guo. Rick Alan Ross says,
   “I met Falun Gong survivors Hao Huijun and her daughter, Chen Guo, after attending an international cultic studies conference in China. Their painfully acquired insight, wrought by a horrible Falun Gong– inspired self-immolation, which took place at Tiananmen Square during 2001, is both compelling and inspiring. They quite literally bear the scars of their experience and are icons of truthfulness, compassion and forbearance.
“This book is dedicated to Hao Huijun and Chen Guo and all former cult members who have moved on to find freedom of mind.”
