Vicky Fang is a product designer at Google who invents things—like cars that talk to each other, robots you can build at home, or games you can play with your voice. She started writing to support the growing need for early coding education particularly for girls and minorities. She holds an MFA in Design & Technology and is an active member of SCBWI. Her debut books, INVENT-A-PET (Sterling picture book), and LAYLA & THE BOTS (Scholastic early chapter book series), are launching in Spring 2020 and feature courageous and innovative girls in STEM.
