Janie Chang writes historical fiction with personal connections, drawing inspiration from a family history with 36 generations of recorded genealogy. She grew up listening to stories about life in a small Chinese town in the years before the Second World War and tales of ancestors who encountered dragons, ghosts, and immortals. Her first novel, THREE SOULS, was a finalist for the BC Book Prizes (Fiction) and her second novel, DRAGON SPRINGS ROAD, was a Globe and Mail national bestseller. Both were nominated for the International Dublin Literary Award. Her third novel, THE LIBRARY OF LEGENDS, has been a Globe and Mail national bestseller.
She began her working life with a degree in Computing Science, but found far more fulfillment earning her creative writing certificate from The Writer’s Studio at Simon Fraser University (Canada). Born in Taiwan, Janie has lived in the Philippines, Iran, Thailand, and New Zealand. She now lives in beautiful Vancouver, Canada with her husband (imported from New Zealand) and Mischa, a rescue cat who thinks the staff could be doing a better job.
