Graci Kim is the bestselling author of The Last Fallen Star, book one in the Korean mythology-inspired middle grade fantasy series. Called a “sparkling yarn” by Entertainment Weekly, the Gifted Clans trilogy has been optioned by the Disney Channel for a live-action television series, and was named a 2021 Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for “Best Middle Grade & Children’s Book”, an Amazon Editor’s pick for Best Book, an Indigo Best Book, and a Publisher’s Lunch Buzz Book. Her work deals with issues around belonging, identity, and finding one’s voice, with a particular emphasis on found families and unbreakable sibling relationships.
|Services to Fandom||Michelle Kan|
Michelle Kan is an outstanding member of the fan community here in Wellington, known for their stunning Chinese brush-style fanart of many beloved F&SF books, animations, and podcasts. They're a prolific author in their own right, but where I think Michelle really shines is their years of volunteering at various events around Wellington as well as their work as a cosplay photographer and videographer. From their vibrant work at Wellington Cosplay Photo Fest to the New Zealand Games Festival and several years of Armageddons across the North Island, Michelle is a household name in fandom events and we as a fan community are so, so lucky to have them.
