Melissa Yue loves all things spooky (but not too spooky, please). When she’s not saving the neighbourhood squirrels from her dog’s machinations, she can be found obsessively researching ghost stories, local lore, and cultural mythologies over bubble tea—half-sweet, and preferably with grass jelly instead of pearls.

Her work is informed by her experiences in the Chinese-Canadian diaspora community, her previous career in English as a Second Language education, and all her nerdy interests in Asian dramas, K-pop, webtoons, anime, and gaming. She graduated from the University of Victoria with a B.A. Applied Linguistics, and she views her writing, like many of her endeavours, as a way to connect back to her roots.
