Eugenia Chu

Eugenia Chu is an attorney, turned stay-at-home mom, turned award winning and best-selling children’s book author. She is Chinese-American and lives on a magical beach in Miami with her husband and son, Brandon, who is the inspiration for her stories. She enjoys reading, writing, traveling, yoga and drinking too much coffee. She has been a presenter at numerous schools, libraries and book festivals.

When Brandon was very little, the author couldn’t find children’s storybooks to read to him which touched upon Chinese culture and which included some Chinese (Mandarin) words to teach and/or reinforce his Chinese vocabulary, so she started writing her own. She is the author of: Brandon Makes Jiǎo Zi (餃子), a picture book; Brandon Goes to Běijīng (北京), a chapter book; Brandon Goes to Hong Kong - Xiānggǎng (香港), a chapter book; and Celebrating Chinese New Year, a nonfiction book. She also has new books coming out, so stay tuned!
