Dina Gu Brumfield was born and raised in Shanghai, China. She came to the United States to join her family as a young adult in late ‘80s. After earning her MBA, she worked as a consultant in New York and at various Silicon Valley companies, before quitting to act on her long-held aspiration to write, in English, her second language. It took her 10 years to write and polish Unbound, her debut novel.
Dina has strong ties in San Francisco Bay Area where she started her new life in this country, and where she calls home in her heart. She currently resides in Maryland with her husband.
