JULIE LEUNG was raised in the sleepy suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, though it may be more accurate to say she grew up in Oz and came of age in Middle-earth. She graduated with an English and journalism degree from University of Georgia.
By day, she is a marketing director in book publishing.
By night, she is a children’s book author. Her first picture book, Paper Son: The Story of Tyrus Wong, won the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature in 2020. Her debut series, Mice of the Round Table was praised as a “winning new adventure,” by Kirkus Reviews.
