• Andrea Wang is the APALA award-winning author of The Nian Monster. Her second picture book, Magic Ramen, is a Junior Library Guild Selection and received a Freeman Book Award Honorable Mention and a starred review from School Library Journal. She loves to travel and sample new and unusual foods. Perhaps unsurprisingly, most of her writing is about food. She is also the author of seven non-fiction titles for the library and school market. Andrea holds an M.S. in Environmental Science and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing for Young People. She lives in the Denver area with her family.


  • I write picture books and middle grade novels that explore culture, creative thinking, and identity. I love writing about food and how food can bring people together. As an environmental scientist, I also enjoy incorporating scientific information and methods into my writing.
