Author Tracking

I came across an article by Mary HK Choi featured on NY Times. Rather than that her writing itself stood out in particular, I just recognized her Korean name and decided to look her up. Although there was no Wikipedia page, she presented her life story as an op-ed piece on NYT. She is actually a Hong Kong native who immigrated to Texas then to New York. Unfortunately, I was not able to learn how her writing career set off. Yet according to her Squarespace website, she writes for GQ, NY Mag, The New York Times, The New York Times, The Awl,The Hairpin, Jezebel, Elle, The Fader, Complex,WIRED, Allure, Matter, MTV and The Atlantic, not all of which I recognize. She is also a Vice News cultural correspondent and surprisingly a comic book writer for Marvel (namely, Lady Deadpool.) It was interesting enough to me that she has been able to establish herself in such a diversity of venues and media forms as an Asian immigrant and with a casual, unequivocal tone of prose.
