I’m Rae Chang.

I am a YA fantasy author represented by the incomparable Mandy Hubbard and Lindsay Mealing of Emerald City Literary Agency. (You can read my “How I Got My Agent” story here!) I have also worked at Donald Maass Literary Agency since May 2016.

I’m particularly known for stabbing lots of people in my books — particularly love interests. Some of them survive it. Some of them don’t.

My CP’s motto while reading anything I write is “Trust No Bitch.”

She’s not wrong.

Muahaha.

When I’m not writing, editing, or reading queries, I am a dancer, irrepressible nerd and gamer,  cooking instructor, and school speaker.

If you’re interested, here’s a slightly more whimsical introduction to me.

And because I can’t think of what you might be interested in knowing, we’ll play 5 random facts!

  1. I’ve lived in six states and moved upwards of twenty times. I really like to travel, in case that isn’t abundantly obvious.
  2. I had a stage in high school where I would only wear clothes that a Dark Jedi/assassin would wear. I sort of never left that stage — except now I wear high heels in addition to the combat boots.
  3. Slytherin. Firebender (with hints of water). Gemini.
  4. I read tarot and fae cards for fun. I’ll put out a call for free readings once or twice a month on Twitter. I also occasionally do step-by-step cooking posts.
  5. I love discussing all things chronic + mental illness. I’m a bipolar Aspie (among other things), and I try to be very open about topics like therapy, medication, healthy living, and living with chronic pain. I discuss and chronicle these kind of conversations on Twitter and Instagram. Never be afraid to reach out if you’re curious or need someone to talk to about this.

  2. How did you get a birthday card from John Williams?! My SecondBorn is an Asiaphile (learning Japanese, Korean, and Chinese–both Mandarin and Cantonese) who loves trying out Asian dishes–usually Korean. And sometimes I have the pleasure of tasting her experiments. I’m sure she has made gnocchi a few times.
