Yi-Ching Hsiao describes herself as an art teacher who likes to sleep like a bear. She likes to sing loudly when taking a bath, and to watch the clouds lying down, daydreaming. She likes reading books and listening to songs, as well as doodling. She loves lots and lots of people, and lots and lots of things. Above all, she likes to lie in the caves during the winter, dreaming like honey, and then weaving those dreams into fairy tales in hopes that everyone will like them as well.
Hsiao is the recipient of the Wu Chuo-liou Literary Prize, the Chiuko Modern Children’s Literature Award, and the Creative Literature Award of the Ministry of Culture.

Her wish since the age of 10 has been to draw illustrations. This dream has finally come true.
