About the Author

C Matula-Hakli photo 2A.jpg

Christina Matula is a Canadian author living in Hong Kong with her family. Being mixed Chinese and Hungarian, she has always been curious about other cultures and far off places. She also loves learning about how families retain some of their culture and heritage when they move to a new country. 

Moving to Hong Kong gave Christina the chance to explore her Chinese roots (amazing food, fascinating festivals) and learn some Mandarin (constant uphill climb). She loves sharing stories that will spark an interest in and passion for Chinese culture in young readers. The Shadow in the Moon is her first picture book. 

Christina is represented by Carrie Pestritto of Prospect Agency.
