As a leading Chinese-American memoirist, literary novelist, young adult author, and New York Times bestselling author, I have been featured in Newsweek, The Chicago Tribune, Time Asia, NPR, CNN, CSPAN Book TV, and Fox News Channel. My newest novel, My Last Empress, will be published by Crown/Random House in 2011. My other book publications in fiction, non-fiction, and young adult reading include Sword; Brothers, named Best Fiction of 2006 by Washington Post; Wandering Warrior; Sounds of the River; China's Son, a Borders 2002 Original Voices Award finalist; and Colors of the Mountain, a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection. I've taught memoir and fiction at Fairfield University and at NYU's Summer Intensive Creative Writing Workshop.
