Qiao Mai

Qiao Mai worked as a journalist before becoming a professional writer. Based in Nanjing, the 33-year-old writer mainly concentrates on metropolitan love stories from a female perspective. Her characters are mostly loners or outsiders, often deeply sensitive. Some critics have dismissed her work as “not serious enough” and overly sentimental, but Qiao Mai is still one of the most popular writers on Douban—a content sharing social media website with an extensive film, book, and music database. She has published five short story collections and novels since 2006. (source: The World of Chinese)
