Hello, my name is Berlin Fang. I am the Director of Instructional Design at Abilene Christian University, the Chinese translator of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, author of Tea Eggs under the Star and Spangled Banner. My career is an unlikely mixture of course design, fiction translation, small-time writing and blogging, which makes total sense in my mind as they all involve a search for dynamic equivalence and cross-cultural understanding.
I came from China to New York in 2002 but kept moving south to West Virginia, Oklahoma, and finally to Texas. Some suspect I follow the migration of the monarch butterflies. The truth is that I just want to avoid parallel parking. I now live in Texas with my wife, two children and quite a number of pets. I can be contacted through the contact page or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
