International superstar author Kevin Kwan has been named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine, as well as one of the most powerful people in Hollywood.

Kwan's previous novels - Crazy Rich AsiansChina Rich Girlfriend and Rich People Problems - have sold 70,000 copies through TCM. They have been on the New York Times bestseller list simultaneously and translated into at least a dozen languages.

Kwan was born in Singapore but has called New York's West Village home since 1995.
