I’m Helen Wan, and I’m an author and lawyer. My debut novel, THE PARTNER TRACK, was released by St. Martin’s Press on September 17, 2013.
THE PARTNER TRACK is about a young Asian American woman poised to become the first minority female partner at a prestigious global firm, and how diversity, difference, politics, and ‘outsider’ status complicate the journeys of talented young people of color as they ascend the corporate ladder.
I’m now at work on a second novel. When I’m not writing or lawyering, I love relaxing with my family, reading fiction, exploring new NYC neighborhoods, trying to grow things in our Brooklyn garden, and making our infant son giggle. I find group dynamics endlessly fascinating. I root for underdogs.
Thank you so much for visiting my website. I’m happy to meet you!
