About the author

Hello and 你好

Nola Li Barr loves nothing more than to hide in her room and read for the entire day. But alas, that was not meant to be. She’s worked as an engineer testing space equipment, an engineer growing LEDs and microchips, and as an event planner, but her love always came back to books. She writes Women's Fiction with a focus on Chinese Americans. Small snippets of Chinese American history are sprinkled throughout her stories in hopes of sharing her own culture with the world. When she’s not writing she can be found reading, making photo books, and navigating the path of motherhood.
