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 to teach and/or reinforce his Chinese vocabulary, so I started writing my own.  This is the first “Brandon” story.  I’m working on a few other stories, so please check in once in a while!  I’ll also be posting reviews for other children’s picture books and introducing other 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!


Well, I’ve decided to jump on the Black Friday-Cyber Monday bandwagon! Brandon Makes Jiao Zi (Kindle version) will be FREE on Amazon Nov. 23-26th! Please download it and if you like it, please leave a review (no need if you don’t – ha ha j/k! All honest reviews are appreciated)! Thank you! Here’s the link:
