Rosalie M. Lin is a second-generation Chinese-American immigrant who grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the most recent decade of her life, she graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Comparative Literature, moonlighted as a pole-dancer in two Beijing nightclubs, tried and failed to get into medical school, and dropped out of a biology PhD program—before seriously pursuing her original dream of becoming a published author. These days, she works in the biotech industry by day and stays up way too late writing. She is an avid dancer and K-pop fan with many, many pets.
Rosalie was a 2020 Pitch Wars mentee. Previously, she attended the Odyssey Writing Workshop in 2012.
For Pitch Wars 2021, Rosalie M. Lin is co-mentoring with Sari Coritz.
