Tanya Lloyd Kyi - Author
Tanya Lloyd Kyi is the author of more than 25 books for children and young adults. She writes both fiction and nonfiction, often choosing topics related to science, pop culture, and history --- or a combination of the three. Along with Under Pressure, Tanya is the author of Mya's Strategy to Save the World, a middle-grade novel, as well as Eyes and Spies, a book for teens about surveillance and privacy.
Tanya's favorite meal is breakfast, her favorite color is blue and her favorite children's book is A Wrinkle in Time. Her personal remedies for stress include pancakes, long walks in the woods and time alone with a notebook and pen.
Tanya lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with her husband, Min. They have a 15-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son (who, no matter how stressed, refuses to walk in the woods).
