I grew up in China and came to the U.S. in my late teens. I had always had the passion for writing but didn’t realize it until college. I started to write short stories in college and my story The Big Banyan Tree won a writing contest at University of California, Berkeley. I became serious about writing fiction after my life with the Mosuo at Lugu Lake.
Writing in a second language isn’t easy but I enjoy it. Thank you for reading my books!
