K. Dai published this novel when she was fourteen years old and a freshman in high school. Since childhood, she has always been greatly inspired by fantasy books, some of which accompanied her into her adolescence. Her love for reading books led her to become a writer. She began writing this novel when she was only nine years old, by simply opening up a new Word document and asking herself a single question: What would happen if I tried writing my own fantasy novel?

Dai lives in California with her family and her dog, Misa, whose clumsiness and lovable personality.
