Tracy Subisak

Zoey Abbott

Tracy Subisak can't stop thinking about being back in Taipei, eating yóutiáo and dòujiāng with her amah and mama. Subisak is the daughter of a Taiwanese mother and Polish American father. She lived in Taipei for a bit as an adult and saw her mama every week, ate delicious night-market snacks and enjoyed every detail of beautiful Taiwan. In addition to "Amah Faraway," she is the author-illustrator of "Jenny Mei Is Sad" and has many illustrated books, including the award-winning "Shawn Loves Sharks" by Curtis Manley and "Wood, Wire, Wings: Emma Lilian Todd Invents an Airplane" by Kirsten Larson.
