Winter Melon Story brings together themes of time, patience and the Asian gourd, winter melon. In this picture book, it illustrates an example of sharing of family history, stories, and culture with friends. As a child that grew up with few books that showed an accurate representation of my Asian or Chinese & Chinese American heritage, I wanted to create a picture book that would help address the lack of diversity children's l...

My Poh Poh's winter melon soup was the inspiration to my book, Winter Melon Story. Every time my family would visit her home, along with so many other homemade delectable Toisanese foods prepared for us, we were warmly welcomed with her table set with ready-to-serve winter melon soup. 

I bought a winter melon a few weeks ago. Where can one purchase winter melon? If you're in San Francisco, there's a vendor at the Wednesday Civi...

Unbeknownst to me, my daughter would arrive the same day as the hardcover's release date! Well, a lot has happened these last seven months, and here I am to finally share a little more about my book with you. It is with great delight to share Publishers Weekly's review for Wildberry Ink's...
