Ed Lin

I'm a native New Yorker of Taiwanese and Chinese descent. My current mystery series is set at a night-market stand in contemporary Taipei, and includes the books Ghost Month, Incensed, and 99 Ways to Die. It's published by the amazing folks at Soho Crime. I also have an older crime series set in Manhattan's Chinatown in 1976 and that includes the books This Is a Bust, Snakes Can't Run, and One Red Bastard. My first book is a non-mystery, a dirty "literary" book titled Waylaid that was published way back in 2002.

I'm the first author to have won three Asian American Literary Awards. I have a degree in mining engineering from Columbia University and a master's in journalism, also from Columbia. I have a day job editing financial news. I live in New York with my incredible wife, the actress Cindy Cheung, and our son.

I'm on Twitter (@RobertChow) and Instagram (@edlinforpresident), and my personal site is www.edlinforpresident.com.
