Natasha Ngan is the author of the THE ELITES, THE MEMORY KEEPERS, GIRLS OF PAPER AND FIRE and its sequel GIRLS OF STORM AND SHADOW, out in November 2019. Ngan is also a writer and yoga teacher. She grew up between Malaysia, where the Chinese side of her family is from, and the UK. This multicultural upbringing continues to influence her writing, and she is passionate about bringing diverse stories to teens. Natasha studied Geography at the University of Cambridge before working as a social media consultant and fashion blogger. She recently moved to Paris, where she likes to imagine she drifts stylishly from brasserie to brasserie, notepad in one hand, wineglass in the other. In reality, she spends most of her time getting lost on the metro and confusing locals with her French. She is also co-owner of fashion, travel and lifestyle blog Girl in the Lens.
