A journalist by training, Liu Ching-Yen has always maintained a love for children’s literature. He spends most of his time translating and writing children’s books. Ching-Yen travels frequently both in Taiwan and abroad to speak to grownups who also love story books. He has also hosted a children’s television program, winning a prize for best children’s presenter in 2013. His greatest wish is to be a little magpie himself and spread the seed of reading around the globe.
