Hi! *waves* I’m the author of Silver Phoenix and Fury of the Phoenix, which just released. They are both young adult fantasies inspired by ancient China with monsters, magic, gods, great food and cute boys.
Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?
As I said, it’s Chinese inspired, although not an actual historical. I do use some myth and folklore from the Chinese culture, but I also make up a lot of stuff, which is the best part of being an author!
What should readers know before stepping into your world?
I’d love if they read with an open mind. If they enjoy fantasy and heroic journeys and adventure, then I hope they enjoy my novels!
Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran?
It is my first time! I’ll be signing Fury of the Phoenix at Harperchildren’s booth on Tuesday at 10.30am!
Are you speaking on any panels during BEA?
Unfortunately, no. I’ll be speaking on Monday for the School Library Journal pre-BEA day of Dialog on Monday at 9.15am for a panel on diversity.
If someone wanted to meet up with you at BEA, who should they look for?
I’m the loud, tallish Chinese girl with curly hair. =) I’ll also be tweeting from @cindypon!
