What is it about your experience and upbringing that inspired you the most to write?
Honestly, it’s so hard to pinpoint any one thing because I’ve been telling stories since before I could hold a pen. But I’m so grateful to my parents for filling our home with books. I grew up with so much magic, and I always knew I wanted to create similar wonder for other people.
Name 3 authors and 3 books
Three recent reads by Asian-American authors: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, The Incendiaries by R.O. Kwon, and Chemistry by Weike Wang! All phenomenal, highly recommended.
What do you think is the best quality a writer can have?
Any last words? (Fun facts, comments, something you’d like to share with the world, etc.)
I hope everybody is doing well in these uncertain times. Sending lots of love and warmth your way.
