The child of two public school teachers, Lisa Yee is a third-generation Chinese American. Born and raised in Los Angeles, her groundbreaking book, Millicent Min, Girl Genius, features one of the first Asian American protagonists in contemporary children's literature. Since then Lisa's had over twenty more books published! In addition to YA novels, her books for younger readers include the Bobby Ellis-Chan series, illustrated by Caldecott medalist Dan Santat, and popular DC Super Hero Girls middle grade novel series.
Lisa's most recent novel, the critically acclaimed Maizy Chen’s Last Chance, features a Chinese American girl who's been kept in the dark about her family history. When Maizy shines a light on it, she's shocked by what she finds. Packed with surprises, heart, and stories within stories, this irresistible novel celebrates food, fortune, and family.
Even though she's had lots of interesting careers, Lisa says that being an author is the best job in the world. She lives In Western Massachusetts, but spends a lot of time in Los Angeles, especially when it's cold.
