About Cherie Chen
I was born and grew up in Bangkok, Thailand in a third-generation Chinese family.
With a daughter’s duty to help support the family business, I studied accounting at university and worked in the auditing and accounting field. It wasn’t until after my eldest child was born and I had moved to the UK that I published 13 children’s books with Thai publishers and became an author/illustrator.
I now enjoy working with sixth form students at a high school in Norwich and keep my creative passions alive by writing and illustrating my own books and producing other art projects.
