Wesley Chu

Wesley Chu's best friend is Michael Jordan, assuming that best friend status is earned by a shared television commercial. If not, then his best friend is his dog Eva who he can often be seen riding like a trusty steed through the windy streets of Chicago.

In 2015, Wesley Chu won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. Chu's debut novel, The Lives of Tao, earned him a Young Adult Library Services Association Alex Award and a Science Fiction Goodreads Choice Award Finalist slot. His latest series, The Rise of Io, published by Angry Robot Books, features a con-woman with an alien cohabitation problem.

He is currently co-writing a Magnus Bane book titled The Red Scrolls of Magic with Cassandra Clare.

Wesley lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Paula, his son, Hunter, and Eva the Airedale Terrier.
