About the Author: Peter K. Chen was a professor of botany and microbiology at Georgetown University for 33 years. He grew up in China and Taiwan and came to the United States in 1955 to study bacteriology and plant pathology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. After retiring in 1996, he became interested in fables. His father had been a published author and scholar on one of the most famous Chinese fable writers, Han Fay Zi. Peter Chen and his wife now live in Charlotte, North Carolina, to be close to their sons and grandsons. Peter translated and edited Fables and Plants (Friesen Press, 2011), and his daughter-in-law, Shelly Chen, served as the English editor for Botanical Fables from Ancient China. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland (BA, 1995) and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Chicago (MA, 2001). Illustrator Rae Liu came to US in 1963 and studied at the University of California, Berkeley. She studied oriental figure art under Master H. M. Yang since 1990.
