Nana Chen

I first noticed Nana Chen's writing in an interview she did with Rita Golden Gelman and then just in case I had any doubts, I found her interview with Hans Kemp .

Today I found a post written by George, over at e-marginalia, about an interview done with Nana on Wayne Yang's Eight Diagrams site.

And it was there that I discovered Nana has her own site called NanaChen.com . But of course...

Nana packed her first suitcase at the age of six. The journey that started from Taipei took her to Manila, San Francisco, Santiago, Buenos Aires, La Paz, Lima, New York City, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. By the time she returned to Taipei over a decade later, she had moved thirty times and gone to fourteen schools.
Before becoming a freelance photographer and writer, Nana was the Travel Editor of e-Marginalia.com interviewing some of the most well-known names in the travel writing industry. She was also Editor/Staff Writer of Ivy League Magazine and Editor of ACNielsen-Taiwan for seven years. Her photography and writing have appeared in topwritecorner.com, Still Moments, e-Marginalia.com, Ivy League, and lexima.gr (translated to Greek). Nana's photographs and paintings have been exhibited in Taipei, Montreal and New York City galleries. Her work has been featured and reviewed on International Community Radio Taipei (ICRT), in New York City's GALLERY&STUDIO, This Month in Taiwan, generationrice.com, and other media. Nana speaks English, Taiwanese, Mandarin and plans to relearn Spanish one day. She currently lives in Taipei with her four cameras.

Ah, she's a star to be sure. And not only her interviews. Her photos, her paintings! I own several and have purchased many others to give as gifts. Never enough Nana...

Oh, how we think alike, w-w! (What's that line about brilliant minds??)

I fell in love with Nana's work, too, when I stumbled across her site from a link in e-marginalia and posted a link.
