Natasha Yim is an American Chinese author of fiction and nonfiction works for children and young adults. Turning to memories of her youth in Hong Kong, she recalled an old legend and created a lovely children’s book for Wisdom Tales — The Rock Maiden: A Chinese Tale of Love and Loyalty, illustrated by the awarding-winning artist and illustrator Pirkko Vainio. Natasha’s story-telling, joined with Pirkko’s flowing, vibrant paintings, bring to life a far-away, long-ago world of separated lovers, sympathetic villagers, magical events, and a helpful goddess.

Born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Natasha Yim grew up in Singapore and Hong Kong where she was captivated by many of the old Chinese legends she heard as a child. Natasha later moved to the U.S. where she received her B.A. in English Literature with a Writing Emphasis and an M.S. in Counseling Psychology from Dominican University.

She is the author of Otto’s Rainy Day (a Kids’ Pick of the Lists selection), Cixi: The Dragon Empress, Sacajawea of the Shoshone, and Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas (a 2014 Junior Library Guild selection and 2015 Scholastic Book Club selection). Natasha’s nonfiction articles have also appeared in the children’s magazines Highlights for Children, Appleseeds, and Faces.

Natasha Yim is currently at work on a multicultural middle-grade novel and a multicultural historical young-adult novel.

Natasha lives in Ukiah, California, with her husband, three children, and two cats named Chicken and Moo.
