Sylvia Liu

Sylvia Liu grew up with books and daydreams in Caracas, Venezuela. Once an environmental attorney protecting the oceans, she now spins stories inspired by high-tech, cool science, and the intricacies of family and friendship. She’s the author of the middle-grade books Hana Hsu and the Ghost Crab Nation (Razorbill 2022), Near and Deer (Scholastic 2024), and Manatee’s Best Friend (Scholastic 2021) and the award-winning picture book A Morning with Grandpa, illustrated by Christina Forshay (Lee & Low Books 2016). Sylvia lives in Virginia with her family and a very fluffy cat.
