About the Author
Judy Choi is a Chinese American author who draws inspiration for her writing from her life experiences. Growing up, she struggled to follow Chinese cultural norms while trying to fit into American society, and discovered she did not fit into either. At the age of 19, she rebelled against both and joined the club kid counterculture movement. She returned to school after 7 years, where she graduated cum laude from the University of Colorado with a degree in English and Psychology and a Masters from Harvard in Psychology. In 2017, Judy Choi established Tigrefou Editions, an independent publishing company with a mission to create exquisite, limited edition art and literature books that address a vast array of topics, from the unconventional to the provocative, cultural identity, club counterculture, love, eroticism, fashion, and the imaginary. "The Cloud that Fell from the Sky" is the first book published by Tigrefou Editions.
