About the Author
Christina Matula is a Canadian author currently living in Hong Kong. Being a child of immigrant parents (from Taiwan and Hungary), 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 cultural 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.
She is also on the Board of Directors of Bring Me A Book Hong Kong, which advocates reading aloud with children and provides quality books to local underserved communities.
