Natasha Ngan Natasha Ngan was born in St Albans, Hertfordshire, and spent her childhood in both the UK and Malaysia, where the Chinese side of her family is from. She also spent it living in two worlds ? reality, and her imagination. As an only child, books were her best friends, and though she now has real, physical, human friends, books are still every bit as important to her. Natasha has always (only) wanted to be an author. The Elites was her first novel, and she regularly blogs about her experiences of being a debut author. Outside of writing Young Adult fiction, Natasha works as a freelance social media consultant and runs a fashion and photography blog with her boyfriend Callum (www.girlinthelens.com).
