Margaret Chiu Greanias is the author of "Maximillian Villainous." The daughter of Taiwanese immigrants, she grew up in New York, Texas and California, while her amah lived far away in Taipei. This book was inspired by her childhood memories visiting her amah—exploring night markets, splashing in hot springs and connecting with relatives—and by her children experiencing Taiwan with their amah for the first time. She currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, three children and a fluffle of dust bunnies.
