I have an incredible team behind me who has helped me bring this project to light. These talented people include an illustrator, a voice artist, graphic designers, a filmmaker, educators in the Chinese teaching community and fellow children’s book authors who have been amazing cheerleaders, mentors and coaches throughout this journey.
A British Born Chinese (BBC), raised in the beating heart of London, I am a bit of a global nomad who recently moved from the quiet suburbs of Dallas, Texas to the countryside of Cambridgeshire, England raising two energetic, little boys.
During the Lunar New Year of the Tiger in 2022, I launched a crowdfunding campaign with a dream of being able to create something to foster Chinese language and culture in a meaningful way. I wanted to help families like mine, nurture the minds and build a more worldly perspective for our children.
And so I created Fish Tales & Rhymes.
The talented artist behind the cutest illustrations. Born in Argentina, raised in London with a Chinese heritage, Lisa is currently a Fine Arts undergraduate at Oxford University,
My soundboard and realist husband who asks the tough questions just when you think you have everything covered.
THE VOICE ARTIST
The angelic voice behind the songs. She's a classically trained musician who loves to song write, compose and produce her own music.
GABRIEL & RAPHAEL
The two inspirations for this passion project who have kept me believing that there are others like them out there who would enjoy these books as much they have.
Wow! I am always on a lookout for new books and fun, educational language resources for my kids. I just couldn't believe how awesome these books are!
