About the Author:

My name is Grace Chang, and Yu Lu is my pen name. Before moving to the United States in 1974, I was a certified junior high school teacher in Taiwan. I graduated from Pima Community College with an Associate Degree in General Studies in 1984. In 1987 I received a B.A. in Literary Chinese from the Department of Oriental Studies at The University of Arizona, and received a M.A. from the same department in 1992. Later, I decided that I wanted to write stories based on my experiences both in China and the United States. I knew this would be a difficult endeavor because I did not learn English until the age of 55. In 2003, I wrote a short story and published it myself. I produced only a small number of copies for family and friends, rather than for commercial interest. In 2013, I have finished my second story entitled “Talon Marks on the Snow.” This novel took me more than ten years to finish, and is loosely based on my family’s experiences during the Chinese civil war and World War II.
