Grace thought up this book when someone spoke disparagingly of fortune cookies.
"Fortune cookies aren't even really Chinese," her friend scoffed.
However, the tone and statement somehow struck a chord with Grace. Being Asian-American, she, herself had been scoffed at as not being "really Chinese". Perhaps the fortune cookie deserved more respect. And what better way than a children's book?
So, Grace went to the drawing board and began to brainstorm. One of things she remembered was an illustration assignment given to her by her RISD professor Fred Lynch. He had given everyone a fortune cookie and made them illustrate their fortune. It was the perfect structure for Grace's book and eventually became Fortune Cookie Fortunes!
