Felicia Lin: Biographer of Su Beng
Felicia Lin “discovered” Su Beng in 2003 after reading an article written by him that had been translated and published in the Taipei Times newspaper. Su Beng is a nonagenarian, lifelong Taiwan independence activist who has spent seven years in China working with the Chinese Communists and author of the seminal book, "Taiwan's 400 Year History" . Felicia Lin is a Taiwanese American writer, who has previously ventured into the fields of finance and banking, human resources, education, and not-for-profit development.

In early 2004 Felicia contacted Su Beng, asking to interview him in order to write a novel based on his life. She began working closely with Su Beng, recording her interviews and conversations with him. Six months later she realized that she had started documenting his life and decided to change course by asking him if she could collaborate with him to write his biography in English.

While living in Taiwan from 2001-2007, Felicia taught English as a second language at the Kaohsiung Hospitality College, Kao Yuan University, and the Bureau of Foreign Trade, all located in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Ms. Lin’s eclectic career has spanned over fifteen years and includes ventures into finance and banking, human resources, education, and not-for-profit development.
