Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I borrowed my dad's manual typewriter as a kid and wrote it. It was about two girls who switched places and needed to find their way back to their parents. Generic, but I really liked The Prince and the Pauper back then.
What do you read for pleasure?
I like a mix of genres. Typically, I go for mystery, Asian-American fiction, women's fiction and YA. I tend to prefer fiction, but I find myself reading biographies and memoirs sometimes.
