When Nancy moved to the United States from Beijing, she was 7 years old and didn't speak a word of English. Determined - she learnt English by reading lots of books.
Nancy wrote her first Fantasy Novel "Swordbird" aged 11. She needed advice, so she e-mailed her manuscript to publishers she found online.
A few weeks later, she received a surprising response - her book was accepted for publication.
Swordbird flew to the top of the New York Times
best-seller list. At age 13, she became the youngest best-selling author in Harper Collins history.
Quote from Nancy: "For all the kids out there who want to pursue their dreams, FOLLOW your dreams. Truly - nothing is impossible"
