Livia  Blackburne

Livia Blackburne, a New York Times bestselling novelist of Chinese descent, published her first novel while studying the neuroscience of reading at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since then, she's gone full-time inside writing, which entails getting into people's thoughts without the use of a three-tesla MRI scanner. She is the author of the picture books I Dream of Popo, which garnered starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Kirkus, as well as The Midnight Thief (an Indies Introduce New Voices pick) and Rosemarked (a YALSA Teens Top Ten finalist).
