DoanPhuong Nguyễn and Family

I’m Doan Phuong Nguyen. I love reading, writing fiction for kids and young adults, hanging out with my husband, playing with my adorable toddler son, and cuddling with my fur babies (two shih tzu and a calico cat).

I was born in Vietnam and immigrated to the United States when I was in elementary school. I’ve lived in the South most of my life, and now I’ve settled in the Midwest.

I received my B.A. from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, and I learned a MFA in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults at the Vermont College of Fine Arts.

I'm a wedding and portrait photographer by day, and a writer at night (and in the wee hours of the morning before everyone wakes up.)

I am represented by Sara Megibow of KT Literary.
