Maisie Chan

Maisie Chan is an award-winning British Chinese children's author who lives in Glasgow. She has written early readers (Rising Stars) and had short stories published in various books such as Ladybird Tales of Superheroes (Penguin) and Stories From Around the World (Scholastic). In 2018, she started the Bubble Tea Writers Network to support and encourage British East Asian writers in the UK. She won the 2022 Jhalak Prize and the 2022 Branford Boase Award for her middle-grade novel, Danny Chung Does Not Do Maths (Bonnier).

Maisie was adopted and grew up in Birmingham, surrounded by British Chinese foster siblings whose families would often take her all out for delicious Chinese food. Maisie grew up watching lots of kung-fu movies as they were the only people on the screen who looked like she did. Maisie decided to become a children's author so that there was at least one positive chinese role model for children to look up to.

Maisie Chan has been a Chinese storyteller in the past and entertained children in libraries, museums and schools with her favourite Chinese myths and legends, all of which feed into the magical world of TIGER WARRIOR. Maisie lived in Taiwan for a while to try to learn Mandarin Chinese which is a very cool language to learn!
