”I’m Writing A Book, I Swear!” with Mia P. Manansala and Lyn Liao Butler

Mia P. Manansala is a 2021 debut author of the acclaimed Tita Rosie’s Kitchen Mystery series, Arsenic and Adobo and most recently, Homicide and Halo-Halo.  She is the winner of the 2018 Hugh Holton Award, the 2018 Eleanor Taylor Bland Crime Fiction Writers of Color Award, and the 2016 Mystery Writers of America/Helen McCloy Scholarship. 

Lyn Liao Butler has lived several lives as a concert pianist, ballerina and now, as a yoga instructor, mother, wife and acclaimed 2021 debut author of The Tiger Mom's Tale and most recently, Red Thread of Fate.  

Mia and Lyn’s discussion offers a frank look into the world of debut writers, where they learn to ward off impostor syndrome, practice self-care to improve their craft, plot new ways to embed their passion for traditional Asian food into their books…and mostly avoid writing steamy sex scenes in their novels.
