Da Chen’s life is a true immigrant success story. A native of China, Chen grew up in a tiny village without electricity or running water. He was a victim of communist political persecution during the Chinese Cultural Revolution but then went on to study at the Beijing Languages and Culture University. Da arrived in America at the age of twenty-three with only $30 and a bamboo flute, and attended the Columbia University School of Law on a full scholarship. Da is the New York Times bestselling author of Colors of the Mountain, a memoir; Sounds of the River; Brothers; the middle-grade novels Wandering Warrior and Girl Under a Red Moon; and several other titles. He lives in Southern California, with his family.
