Maisie Chan's headshot

I am a British Chinese author, mainly for children and teens. I often write about outsiders, marginalised people and generational differences. I have taught creative writing to adults and children, am a mentor for new writers and am interested in health and wellbeing.

I recently published Stories From Around the World - a book of eighteen fairytales, myths and legends from many countries - with Scholastic.
