Hi! I’m an attorney, turned stay-at-home mom, turned writer. I am a first generation Chinese-American citizen and live in Miami Beach with my husband and son, Brandon, who is the inspiration for my stories. When Brandon was very little, I couldn’t find children’s storybooks to read to him which touched upon Chinese culture and which included some Chinese (Mandarin) words and phrases to teach and/or reinforce his Chinese vocabulary, so I started writing my own.
**Signed books available to US addresses only**

Brandon Goes to Hong Kong – Xiānggǎng (香港) is my second chapter book.
While on a trip to Hong Kong, Brandon thinks he sees a great red dragon – but is it real or imaginary? Join Brandon as he tours the city and learns about dragons in this multicultural, multigenerational chapter book which includes some Mandarin Chinese (Simplified) with Pinyin pronunciation throughout, adding educational elements of the Chinese language and culture. Is Brandon the only one who sees the dragon? Can legendary or mythical creatures ever be real? What do you believe?
I’m working on a few other stories, too, so please check in once in a while! I’ll also be posting reviews for other children’s books and introducing children’s book authors on my blog. Hopefully you will find some new books/authors here that the little ones in your lives will love! Thanks so much for visiting my website!
