About the author

Alice Poon


After a childhood spent devouring Jin Yong’s wuxia (or martial arts heroes) novels, Alice Poon has, over the years, fed herself a steady diet of modern wuxia/xianxia and historical C-dramas, Chinese history and mythology masterpieces.
 Since the release of her two historical Chinese novels: The Green Phoenix and Tales of Ming Courtesans, nostalgia for the magical world of wuxia has spurred her desire to write in the Chinese fantasy genre. Her writing has been inspired by the wuxia/xianxia media, Chinese mythology classics and period history.
She lives in Vancouver, Canada and wishes to indulge herself in putting her imagination on the page.
