About the Author

V.T. Bidania was born in Laos and grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota. She spent most of her childhood writing stories and now that she’s an adult, she is thrilled to be writing stories for children. She has an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from The New School and is a recipient of the Loft Literary Center’s Mirrors & Windows Fellowship. She lives outside of the Twin Cities with her family.


Hmong characters are rarely included in children’s literature and have never been featured as protagonists in chapter books; Debut author V.T. Bidania is a rising talent, having been chosen as a Loft Literary Center Mirrors and Windows fellow; Astrid and Apollo's twin relationship is delightful, honest, and warm; Not many twin chapter book series in the market, and this friendship will speak to readers of all ages
