Having graduated from National Taitung University’s Graduate Institute of Children’s Literature, Tsen Peng-Wei now works as a primary school teacher. Her favourite pastime is sitting on a comfortable chair and waiting for the stories to come to her, where she can catch them. While she often has to battle with her prey, she was soon addicted to the unpredictable nature of it, and now she can’t live without her writing. She has won numerous awards, including the Dawushan prize for Literature twice, and the 2004 Council for Cultural Affairs’ prize for children’s literature. She has published novels, picture books, and essays to great acclaim.
