Yi Shun Lai (say "yeeshun" for her first name) is the author of Not a Self-Help Book: The Misadventures of Marty Wu (Shade Mountain Press, 2016). She is a writer and editor living in Southern California. She is the nonfiction editor for the Tahoma Literary Review. She was, for a time, the youngest-ever writer for the legendary J. Peterman catalog. And that was before Seinfeld discovered it.
