Liu Hong grew up in the North East of China, near the Chinese-North Korean border. She came to Britain in 1989 and took an MA in social anthropology at Oxford. Since then she has worked here as a writer, teacher, and as a translator. Her writing career began with four novels published by Headline Review: Startling Moon (2002), The Magpie Bridge (2004), The Touch (2006), and Wives of the East Wind (2007). She is also the author of Nas folhas do Cha, a children’s book co-written with Flavia Lins e Silva, published by ZAHAR (2012).

She took a break from writing to raise children, chickens and chives; she returns now with The Good Women of Fudi. She lives in Wiltshire.
