Goodreads asked Jamie Barys:

How do you get inspired to write?

Jamie Barys I've been writing about food in China since 2008 - it's what made me fall in love with the country and stay here for nearly a decade. My mission in life is simple: help visitors to and residents of Shanghai eat well. I set out to achieve her goal in 2010 by launching UnTour Shanghai, a food tour company that guides guests to the best local hole-in-the-wall vendors and street food stands on a walking tour. Now in 2015, I have taken my experiences as a food tour operator over the past five years and taken my passion a step further with Glutton Guide Shanghai, the first e-guidebook in a new series dedicated to uncovering a city’s best places to eat and drink.
