Maisie Chan

Maise Chan is a British Chinese author, born in Birmingham and now living in Glasgow. She runs the Bubble Tea Writers Network, a support group that she set up to encourage writers of East and South-East Asian descent. She also founded the Glasgow Children’s Writers Network and is a mentor for Leila Rasheed’s Megaphone Writer Development project.

Tiger Warriors is new series from Maisie. It is likely to appeal to readers who enjoy action led page-turning narratives (and is pitched by the publisher as likely to appeal to Beast Quest readers). Maisie has a keen interest in Chinese myth and legend, and has previously written titles on this subject in education series.  She draws on this mythological pool for Tiger Warriors, and especially the animals of the Chinese zodiac.
