I'm horrible at writing about myself so let's do a fact list instead:

  • As a second-generation Chinese, I was raised on a diet of Chinese cartoons and dramas. Journey to the West was basically my Sponge Bob.
  • I'm a recent grad of the University of Pennsylvania, where I majored in Psychology and minored in East Asian Language and Cultures, to which I probably devoted more time. I definitely devoted the most time to writing. To this day, I'll still not sure how I graduated.
  • I love all animals, but cats and wombats especially. 
  • The weirder and scarier the anime, the better. 
  • I should really be sponsored by Starbucks. 
  • I am represented by John Cusick of Folio Lit.


Descendant of the Crane is my debut novel. To learn more about its journey to publication, visit my FAQ page.
