Libby was born into a home of a temporary resettlement estate in Hong Kong during the 1970s. With the love of her grandmother and the support from the government-subsidized education system, she was able to receive higher education and developed her different interests, including writing and drawing. After completing her master’s degrees in Psychology and Business Administration, Libby pursued a region-wide corporate career for more than 10 years until her first daughter was born. The life changing moment inspired her to start a career in creating children’s books, through which she hopes to help young readers learn about self-love and the importance of developing their own talents. “Checklisted Beauty” is her first attempt in pursuing this new life goal, with more stories coming up in the pipeline.
Libby currently resides in Hong Kong with her husband and their two daughters. She has been studying Illustration and Sequential Arts at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Hong Kong.
