Vanessa Wu was born in Fuzhou, China, where her parents worked in the Communist Army Hospital. She educated herself on a diet of foreign literature, some of it quite respectable, including nearly everything written by Jane Austen, W. Somerset Maugham, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
She graduated from Fudan University in Shanghai and travelled in Asia and Europe where she met many interesting men before completing her sexual and academic education at Westminster University, London.
She works for a law firm in London and lives close to Greenwich Park where she can often be seen talking to people with dogs. If she had a dog of her own it would be a Beagle and she would call him Billy. If she writes enough stories and enough people buy them maybe she can give up working at that stuffy old law firm and stay at home with Billy instead, going for long walks in the park in the morning and having long, sensual daydreams in the afternoon.
Until then, she joins thousands of commuters every day on the Docklands Light Railway and spends many an idle hour anticipating her next erotic encounter.
