Hi. My name is Shirin Yim and I am an Ezra Jack Keats Award-winning author of 19 books; an editor, writing coach and retreat leader; a Publishers Weekly “new author to watch”—and thirteen years later, front cover feature; and founding goose of Goosebottom Books. I have taught writing and publishing at the NSW Writers’ Center in Australia, the AFCC in Singapore, the Writing Salons in San Francisco and Berkeley, and for eight universities including Stanford. As you will see from these pages, I am also currently in the throes of writing a novel. If you are a writer too, I hope our journeys overlap!
