Long-Quan Nguyen is a Vietnamese American writer and devoted reader of all things middle grade. He loves dragons, plants, and cats. You are likely to find him in a Target store or sipping his third cup of coffee at a cozy corner somewhere; otherwise he likes to spend his time reading and being excited about works from LGBTQ+ and diverse authors.
