Berlin Fang Head ShotWelcome to my site.  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, binge 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 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 berlinfang@gmail.com.
