Hi. My name is Nu Yang. I live in Southern California, but I’m a Midwest girl at heart.
I am the managing editor of Editor and Publisher magazine. I was the assistant editor with New Myths, an online speculative magazine, from 2010-2013. I spent four years as a staff writer for The Allegan County News, a small weekly newspaper in southwest Michigan, where I traveled to Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina, hunted for ghosts, and interviewed celebrities.
I am a 2006 graduate of the Odyssey Fantasy Writing Workshop and a June 2009 graduate of the Writing Popular Fiction Master’s program at Seton Hill University. I belong to the Southern Orange County Writers Critique Group. I also contribute to the Speculative Chic website.
And for the fun stuff: I love singing karaoke (anything 80s). I’ve been tasered before (voluntary). I’ve kayaked down a river during a thunderstorm (and I can’t swim). My favorite color is blue (previously, purple). My first celebrity crush was Macaulay Culkin (no regrets).
