About Jillian Lin

When I had to delve into my Chinese roots for a family reunion, I stumbled on the most amazing stories about the emperors, warriors, artists, and inventors that make up the long and colorful history of China. It was then that I realized that history doesn't have to be about boring facts and dates. It can be as exciting, gripping, and fascinating as the best made-up adventure stories. Inspired, I decided to bring those stories from Chinese history to life. No dates, no dry details-just interesting stories that children as young as five can enjoy and hopefully, learn a fact or two in the process. My greatest wish is that children and adults alike will have as much fun reading my books as much as I've had writing them.
