Karly Welcomes New Client Maureen Tai

September 7, 2022

We’re thrilled to announce that Maureen Tai has signed as a client of Karly Dizon at Fuse Literary.

Maureen Tai is an award-winning writer of fiction for children and teens, who dreams of a world where every child can see themselves in a book. Born and bred in Malaysia but currently based in Hong Kong, Maureen has lived, worked, and travelled extensively in both the East and West, and is fluent in four languages.

She spent over two decades in the corporate world before swapping her legal career to write (her published works can be found at www.maureentai.com) and to read (especially with her children). Maureen is passionate about promoting diversity in children’s literature and strives to do so by writing authentic Asian stories that embody universal truths, working with local literacy organizations, and reviewing children’s books on her family blog and YouTube channel. She is also an unabashed fan of durian (the world’s most pungent fruit), glass dip pens and cute stationery.
