Who’s Aimee Liu?

I’m a veteran author, ghostwriter, and creative writing teacher, and my plan for this newsletter is to share the wealth that I’ve gleaned over more than 30 years of publishing. I’ll also be posting installments from my new memoir in progress, an exploration of the multi-generational fallout of my father’s experience as a Chinese-American immigrant.

My books include the novels Glorious Boy, Cloud Mountain, Flash House, and Face, which have been published in more than a dozen languages. I’ve also written a couple of groundbreaking books about eating disorders, Solitaire and Gaining The Truth About Life After Eating Disorders. And chances are, you’ve read at least one of the bestsellers I’ve ghostwritten.

I have an MFA from Bennington Writers, and I taught for many years in Goddard’s MFA in Creative Writing Program. In this newsletter, I’ll pass on some of the tricks and insights I used to share with my students.
