Janie Chang writes historical fiction, often with a personal connection, drawing from a family history with 36 generations of recorded genealogy. She grew up listening to stories about life in a small Chinese town in the years before the Second World War and tales of ancestors who encountered dragons, ghosts, and immortals.

Her first novel, THREE SOULS, was a finalist for the 2014 BC Book Prizes Fiction Prize and her second novel, DRAGON SPRINGS ROAD, was a Globe and Mail national bestseller. Both these books were nominated for the International Dublin Literary Award. Her third book, THE LIBRARY OF LEGENDS, has been a Book of the Month pick and a Globe and Mail national bestseller. THE PORCELAIN MOON releases in February 2023; also in September 2023, THE PHOENIX CROWN, which Janie has co-authored with Kate Quinn.

Born in Taiwan, Janie has lived in the Philippines, Iran, Thailand, and New Zealand. She now lives in beautiful Vancouver, Canada with her husband and a cat who thinks the staff could be doing a better job.
