The first story Mai Wen wrote, when she was 7-years-old, was about a tree house and a dog. Two things her 7-year-old heart yearned for but did not have. So began her lifelong chase through her dreams, and her nightmares, from mind to written word.

In her essay, "Just Call Her Madame" from the anthology "You Do You," Mai writes about empowering girls and how the messages we give them can hold them down. Much of what she writes hold true to these themes. Her two young adult science fiction manuscripts portray a girl surviving from abuse with a bit of time travel thrown in. In her adult fantasy manuscript she is currently working on, Mai addresses sexism and racism in an urban setting. And there's glowing skin.

Just in Time.

We couldn't have planned it better. What better week for an anthology about how awesome teachers are to come out than TEACHERS APPRECIATION WEEK?!?

And even better, I'm in the anthology. :)

Want to read about all the different ways teachers make the world a better, funnier, safer, smarter place, then pick up WILL WORK FOR APPLES, a collection of stories that trumpets teachers for all they do.
