31 DAYS OF ASIAN AUTHORS, DAY 12: Joanne Machin

Name: Joanne Machin

Website: www.joannemachin.com

Asian background: Chinese-American

What is it about your experience and upbringing that inspired you the most to write? 

I didn’t see very many stories in the media related to being an immigrant or being Chinese-American in the United States. I want to see more of these narratives brought up in the books I read, the TV shows and movies I watched, and more. Romance is my favorite genre–so I started there. I’d love to see more Chinese-Americans, and Asian people in general, get their happily-ever-afters!

Name 3 authors and 3 books: 

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

Temporary Wife Temptation by Jayci Lee

Faker by Sarah Smith

What do you think is the best quality a writer can have? 

Always being open to learning something new! 

Any last words? 

I’m currently obsessed Animal Crossing: New Horizon, so if anybody wants to be friends… hit me up. 

Challenge: Write a one-sentence story! 

Once I paid off Tom Nook, it was time for him to pay me back.
