About the Author:
Eugenia Chu is an attorney, turned stay-at-home mom, turned writer. She is a first generation Chinese-American and lives in Miami with her husband and son, Brandon, who is the inspiration for her stories.
When Brandon was very little, the author 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 she started writing her own. Brandon Makes Jiǎo Zi (餃子) is the first “Brandon” story.
