About the Author

2I have a confession to make.
When I was at school, I used to hate history class. I used to dread the days when I had to sit through it. As the teacher droned on and on, spouting off dates and events, I would chew my pencil and daydream about my next adventure story (this is what I used to read and write every spare minute of the day).
As soon as I could drop the subject, I gladly did, tossing my books in the trash with a huge sigh of relief–I’d never have to read another boring history book in my life again.
So how on earth did I end up as the author of a series of children’s books about my most-hated subject?When I had to delve into my Chinese roots for a family reunion, I stumbled on the most amazing stories about the emperors, warriors, artists, and inventors that make up the long and colorful history of China.I realized then that history doesn’t have to be about boring facts and dates. It can be as exciting, gripping, and fascinating as the best made-up adventure stories. I realized that in the very word ‘history’ sits the word I’ve always loved: ‘story’.

Inspired, I decided to bring those stories from Chinese history to life. No dates, no dry details–just interesting stories that children as young as five can enjoy and hopefully, learn a fact or two in the process.

My greatest wish is that children and adults alike will have as much fun reading my books as much as I’ve had writing them.
