An author I can relate to

I have discovered only recently the books by Lensey Namioka, a Chinese American author of children’s books. I, also, write about the stories with Asian ¬†American characters, how their culture and American culture can collide and how their experiences can be different from Caucasian americans. ¬†She can get into the heart and mind of her characters. I hope I can succeed in the same way.

Namioka’s books are not only illuminating for Caucasian readers, but also reassuring to Asian readers that there are children like them that face overcome problems similar to their own.
