Terroryaki by Jennifer K. Chung wins 33rd 3-Day Novel contest

Jennifer K. Chung

First prize: Jennifer K. Chung of Bellevue, Washington, for Terroryaki!

About the Book: It’s three months until the wedding, and Samantha’s Taiwanese parents won’t warm up to her hopelessly white fiancé. Meanwhile, Sam’s food-obsessed sister, Daisy, is on the hunt for an otherworldly take-out truck whose dishes are to die for. Terroryaki! is a quirky tale of love, family, redemption and the best—if slightly cursed—dish of chicken teriyaki to be found in this realm of existence.

About the Author: Jennifer K. Chung is a Taiwanese-American writer, pianist and software engineer. She grew up in Southern California and studied computer science at MIT in Cambridge, MA. In her spare time, Jennifer plays keyboard in a goth metal band and studies the Japanese martial art of Naginata. She lives near Seattle.

For The Island of Broken Toys, the haunting tale of a community of mysterious children who seek out the truth behind their exile
