Unofficial Bio

Anne R. Tan fell in love with storytelling in elementary school but got a “real job” as a paper pusher and moonlights as a writer to keep the voices inside her head under control.

She is a breast cancer thriver with a broken green thumb. As the sous chef in her family, if a recipe is complicated, then it ain't happening. She is married to her version of Bob Vila who believes everything needs to be fixed, even if it's already working. Even her flock of 20+ chickens are crazy. The koi fishes in her pond are the only sane members of her household.

Her humorous cozy mysteries feature Raina Sun and Lucy Fong, Chinese-American amateur sleuths, dealing with love, family betrayal, and finding their place in the world while solving murders.
