Laurie Hashim

Laurie Hashim lives with her husband, three boys, and two dogs in Santa Barbara, California. Laurie graduated many years ago with a degree in economics from Tufts University. She has worked in management consulting in Boston, advertising in Kuala Lumpur, and software in San Francisco. But these days when she is not writing or doing research for writing, she is hiking, biking, and travelling.

The island of Penang has captivated the author ever since she married into a sprawling, multicultural family from this metropolitan mosaic almost thirty years ago. Hashim is grateful to the Penang historical society, fastidious colonial records, and a generation of Penangites devoted to writing memoirs, which have helped her place her imagined characters in their proper time and place.
