Julia Wong Kcomt was born into a Tusán (Chinese Peruvian) family in Chepén, Perú, in 1965. Her father was a well-known philanthropist in Macau who founded a project in 1995 to create public libraries in open spaces like parks and gardens. She traveled from an early age, and her perceptions of country borders, different cultures, and diversity in ethnicity and religion became a strong motivation to write.
